How to make an overnight oatmeal?

How to make an overnight oatmeal? | Sometimes I am very lazy to cook since at times you have to prepare a lot of ingredients and the process is long. So when that laziness came I decided to prepare something else instead. I made an overnight oatmeal. Let me share with you how I prepared my oatmeal recipe.

What I like about oatmeals is that it is very quick and easy to prepare. You can add any toppings you like and this simple oatmeal can help give you energy plus making you feel full. Everyone has their own ways of preparing the oatmeal. So here I'm going to share how I make my overnight oatmeal?

Muesli and Oats differences


Before that, some people thought that oats and muesli were the same thing. There are differences between muesli and oats. Both are known to be a source of healthy breakfast items. Muesli is a ready-to-eat cereal made with whole grain cereal with a variety of other ingredients like oats, dried fruit, wheat flakes and nuts like almonds. On the hand, oats are a variety of cereal grain made from rolled seeds of oats grass. 

Just as I listed, this is what I used to make my oatmeal. 


What you need to make an oatmeal


  1. Oat 
  2. Muesli
  3. Milk
  4. Honey
  5. Greek Yogurt
  6. Chocolates or chocolate bar (optional)


No microwave oatmeal


I know some recipes require you to use a microwave but since I don't have a microwave I made one which you can either eat on the spot or make it an overnight oatmeal. I love having two options and  a variety of ways to eat. 


So how easy is easy? Let's see.

My instructions are not that good because I am the kind who would actually just throw the ingredients straight up into the glass or whatsoever. No particular rules included except for the need to mixed it all together in the end.

How to make an overnight oatmeal?


So here's what you need to do. 

  1. Prepared a glass or jar of your choice to put your oatmeals. 
  2. Next layer down a greek yogurt at the bottom of your jar and put some honey on top of that. 
  3. Then you can put in both the oats and muesli inside the jar.
  4. Lastly pour in some milk until it reaches the top of your oats and muesli. 
  5. Here's the last thing to do that is the toppings. You can either put the toppings right after the milk or before you want to eat after a night inside the fridge. It's up to you. 

I don't like to put much but enough with a few bars of chocolates. It's optional and you can create it to your liking.

After that you're done and it's ready to eat. For me I like to eat it after a few hours inside the fridge or you can say after a night since it's an overnight oatmeal.

My overnight oatmeal looks slightly different and also tastes different thanks to the toppings. Eating exactly the same thing everyday can be boring so I tried making it a little different each time using the ingredients I have. That way I don't have to go out and buy something else, enough with what I already have. And that's chocolate XD. 





You can just stir and mix your oatmeal so that you can taste the sweetness of the honey and a little sour by the greek yogurt altogether. It'll make your taste buds dance a little.



Not that great but this is one of my favourite oatmeal that can be eaten right away. Sometimes I put it in the fridge so that it'll get cooler, the muesli and oats will get soaked with the milk giving it a better taste. Anyway it can be either way. 

Have you ever made an oatmeal or overnight oatmeal? Mind sharing your recipes too. Who knows I can try it too sooner or later.
