Steel Cut Overnight Oats are made with just seven ingredients for a balanced breakfast filled with complex carbs, protein, and healthy fats. Easy for meal prep to store in the refrigerator for the next few mornings. Gluten free and vegan friendly!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 3/4 cups milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, Skyr, or dairy-free yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt


  1. Combine: Add all ingredients to large bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Refrigerate: Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
  3. Stir: The next morning, stir before enjoying and add favorite toppings.
  4. Serve: To enjoy warm, place desired amount in small saucepan, heating on medium low heat, adding more liquid for preferred consistency. 


STORAGE – store in a large airtight container for the first day, and then separate into individual portions the next day. The larger volume of liquid helps the oats soak more evenly. The oats will soften as the days go by, but steel cut oats hold their texture for 3-4 days.
