For the longest time, overnight oats were one of those breakfasts that I kept meaning to try. I’d see a tasty looking recipe and think, “Hey, I should make that!” But, I never did … until a visit from my sister a few months ago.

While she was here, we got to talking about breakfast. I’m not the biggest breakfast fan, so I tend to stick to simple, tried and true recipes. Perhaps inspired by one too many egg sandwiches, she mentioned how much she loved overnight oats.

After she left, I finally made my first batch of Easy Overnight Oats in a jar, and I’ve been eating this simple breakfast recipe ever since!

Learn how to make this delicious, nutricious, and timesaving breakfast recipe to free up your mornings! | Hello Little HomeHere’s a little known fact: I may be a city girl now, but I come from a long line of dairy farmers. My mom grew up on a farm, and I have lots of great memories of feeding baby calves and helping out on my cousin’s farm while growing up.

Did you know that those ubiquitous black and white, spotted Holstein cows produce 90% of the milk we drink in the United States? Promised Land Dairy, on the other hand, use Jersey Cows from the British Isle of Jersey (not the state of New Jersey).

Less than 10% of the milk we drink here in the US comes from Jersey cows, like the ones at Promised Land Dairy. Not only are the Jerseys themselves extraordinary, but so is the milk that they produce.

To produce its natural milk, Promised Land treats their precious Jersey cows to lots of TLC, but never artificial hormones. I love that!

Jersey cows make Promised Land Milk far from ordinary, and you can make your day far from ordinary by using Promised Land Milk in this Easy Overnight Oats recipe!

To start, you’ll want to grab a container with a lid. I like to use a pint size mason jar, but any kind of storage container, empty jar, or even a bowl with a little plastic wrap will work.

My basic Easy Overnight Oats in a jar recipe is simply a combination of old-fashioned oats, milk (I used full fat here, but I often use 2%), and a little sweetener (I prefer maple syrup). I don’t like my oats too sweet, so feel free to add more sweetener depending on your preference. I also add a dash of cinnamon, as well as a tiny pinch of salt to enhance the flavors .

This mixture get refrigerated overnight, and in that time, the oats soften up and become deliciously creamy … yum! I like to add my toppings in the morning to keep them super fresh, but if you know you’ll be in a rush, add them at night along with the other ingredients.

  • Boost the nutrition by adding chia seeds, hemp hearts, or flax seeds.
  • Add your favorite berries and fruits. Strawberries, apples, bananas, peaches, blackberries, pineapple, mango, and more all work great. To save a little money, pick up a bag of frozen fruit. And give dried fruit a try, too!
  • Experiment with different spices and seasonings, like ginger, cardamom, allspice, pumpkin pie spice, or even a little citrus zest.
  • Stir in almond, peanut, or other nut butters.
  • Top with your favorite nuts, such as walnuts, almonds, and pecans.
  • Try adding a sweet/savory element with roasted sweet potato, butternut squash, or pumpkin.

By the way, I usually eat my oats cold, but you can heat them up in the microwave if you prefer.
