  • 100 g oats
  • 1 cup milk (almond milk, oat milk or cow's milk)
  • 4 tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • 4 tablespoon raisins
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  • Add all the ingredients to a bowl, masjon jar or container with a lid, and stir to combine. Place your container in the fridge, and leave it there overnight, for at least 6 hours.
  • The oats will soak up the liquid, leaving them creamy and delicious. When you are ready to serve them the next day, simply give them a stir and transfer the porridge to a bowl.
  • Serve the oats cold, or heat them in the microwave for 20-30 seconds before serving.


Which oats should you use for overnight oats?
Old fashioned rolled oats are the best for overnight oats. They absorb the liquid really well. Quick oats tend to get too mushy, and steel cut oats is better suited for cooking.
How do overnight oats work?
Oats, milk and yogurt is combined in a bowl and stored in the fridge overnight. Over the course of a few hours, the oats will absorb the liquid and get a soft, porridge like texture.
Are overnight oats healthy?
Yes. Overnight oats are made with oats, which is widely considered to be healthy.
Are overnight oats eaten cold?
You can eat overnight oats cold straight out of the fridge, or heat it up slightly in the microwave before serving.
How long do overnight oats last in the fridge?
3-5 days. Overnight oats last up to 3 days if you use cow’s milk, or up to 5 days if you use a plant based milk like oatmilk. The longer you leave it, the creamier the textures!
How long to overnight oats take to make?
Overnight oats need at least 6 hours in the fridge to get a creamy texture. The longer you leave them, the creamier they will become.


Leftover cinnamon raisin overnight oats can be stored in the fridge for up to 3-5 days. You can therefore prepare multiple servings for quick and easy breakfasts in the days to come.
I do not recommend freezing leftovers, as the texture of the oats will change after thawing.
