Optional overnight oats extras
Check the list below for optional extras - and keep an eye on those syns!
  • A little sweetener if you like ‘em sweet. I
  • Fruit - as long as you use fresh or frozen whole fruit this is FREE. I prefer using frozen fruit as it is both cheaper and doesn’t totally dissolve overnight. Extra fruit as a topping is a must too.
  • Chia Seeds - I love adding chia seeds to my overnight oats! Rich in fibre and they will swell up making your overnight oats more pudding-like.
  • Milled flaxseed/linseed 
  • Mixed nuts
  • Seeds - 2 tbsp pumpkin or sunflower seeds 
  • Vanilla extract or paste - optional but yummy!
  • Ground cinnamon, matcha powder, any other ground spices - free 
Overnight Oats Variations
  • Strawberry Overnight Oats: use a fat free strawberry yogurt, your choice of milk and rolled oats. Add a handful of fresh or frozen strawberries and a tablespoon of chia seeds or flaxseed. Serve with extra strawberries.
  • Chocolate Overnight Oats: stir in 1 tbsp tablespoon cocoa powder or 1 tablespoon Sweet Sensations Choc Shot. Add frozen cherries to turn to Black Forest oats.
  • Apple and Cinnamon: stir in some ground cinnamon and a little unsweetened apple purée (apple sauce). Serve with extra apple on top.
  • Matcha Overnight Oats: stir in 1-2 teaspoons matcha powder and 1 tbsp sweetener. Best served with strawberries.
