I was so skeptical about trying this for breakfast.  I mean, seriously.  Oatmeal is supposed to be cooked, right?  Well that’s how I was raised:  cooked oatmeal with butter and sugar or brown sugar. Anyhoo, I decided to give this a chance and I was pleasantly surprised.  I eat mine with fruit, granola, and mixed nuts .


  • 1 cup of your favorite non-dairy milk, almond, cashew or coconut milk
  • 1 cup steel cut (raw, soaked, and dried), old-fashioned rolled oats or freshly made granola (this is what I used)
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1/8 cup chia seeds, optional but highly recommended
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ – ½ cup organic raw agave, honey, or maple syrup
  • Your favorite toppings: fruit (fresh or dried), nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut, spices, citrus zest and vanilla extract


  1. Add milk, oats, yogurt, chia seeds, vanilla, and agave to a jar or container and give them a good stir or shake.
  2. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours.
  3. In the morning, add additional liquid if you’d like.
  4. Once you achieve the desired consistency, top with your favorite toppings.  I used fruit, mixed nuts and more granola.

I love porridge and I love overnight oats. I discovered these about 18 months ago and they are a great way to enjoy rolled oats in the Australian summer. So easy to prep for a work day and eat and go. I will give your recipe ago as it is slightly different to the one I use. Always like to mix the healthy tasty recipes up a bit. Might just prep some for tomorrow morning just because I can!
