Overnight Oatmeal

Overnight oatmeal is a great way to have a healthy breakfast without doing any cooking! 

I got this idea from Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. While I love her original recipe, I had to scale it back just a little. I replaced the sugar with honey and swapped out some of the ingredients.

I love waking up knowing breakfast is already done!  This also makes for the perfect meal on the go. 


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1-2 cups whole milk, plus more if needed
  • 1/4 cup chopped dates
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 small apple, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • In a bowl, mix together the oats, milk, dates, honey, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and apple. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • The next morning give the mixture a stir and add a bit more milk if it has become too thick. Serve with fresh berries on top.
