  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats

  • 1/8 cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

Once you prepare overnight oats, enjoy them within 3-5 days for optimal texture and flavor. The longer overnight oats sit, the more liquid the oats will absorb, and the oat grains will break down and become softer in texture.

Can you heat up overnight oats?

While overnight oats are typically enjoyed cold right from the fridge, you could heat them up if you much prefer hot oats. Put overnight oats in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 1 minute, or until warmed through.
