Overnight Oats

Being organised is an important skill when you have a demanding job requiring shift work. Having some preserving jars in the fridge with overnight oats can be a godsend for a quick breakfast on the run (or coming home from night shift before a well needed sleep). Allowing them to soak overnight gives them a beautiful, thick, creamy texture that works well with a variety of nuts and fruit. Be prepared and be creative!

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup natural Greek yogurt


  1. Mix the ingredients until well combined.
  2. Place the mixture in a clean, dry mason jar (or airtight container) and store overnight in the fridge.
