No-Cook Oatmeal



Base ingredients:

  • ¼ cup rolled oats (NOT instant)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chia seeds
  • ⅓ cup milk (I like skim for this, but any kind is fine)
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt (Greek is needed because it is thicker, though you can strain regular yogurt)
  • Suggestions for toppings and additions:
  • 3 tbsp. diced fresh peach, 6 raspberries, 1 tsp honey
  • tbsp. diced fresh strawberries, a few raspberries, a few blueberries, 1 tsp of blueberry, raspberry, or strawberry jam
  • 3 tbsp. banana diced, 1 tsp cocoa powder, 1 tbsp peanut butter, ½ tsp honey
  • ¼ cup fresh home-made or store-bought applesauce, pinch of cinnamon, ½ tsp honey


  1. Combine “base” ingredients in the jar, put on the lid and shake vigorously until it is mixed well.
  2. Then add your sweeteners, fruit and other flavors, stir to combine, put on lid and refrigerate over-night. If you choose to use vanilla or flavored yogurt as opposed to plain you might want to use less sweetener or omit it completely, based on your taste.
