I’m not sure how overnight oats passed me by for so long, but once I just finally tried overnight oats, I was in love.
Oh my, they are awesome!
I love that I can mix a few simple ingredients together at night and that it’ll be ready for me the next nothing. 10 minutes, then sleep. Perfection.
Because what’s better than a delicious, clean-eating, healthy, and easy breakfast waiting for you when you wake up?
I mean…”sleep” is pretty much an ingredient here.
I also love that my kiddos love overnight oats, too. They enjoy choosing what flavors they want in their mason jars and it’s something they look forward to the next morning.
This overnight oats recipe is super tasty. It is jammed full of fiber and protein and yumminess.
Honestly, though, it is hard to go wrong with cinnamon, oatmeal, raisins, and yogurt. I also add in chia seeds for additional protein and texture. So good, yet so simple!

Cinnamon Raisin Overnight Oats Recipe
It’s really so easy — just combine all the ingredients, pop in the fridge, and go to sleep. They’ll be waiting for you, all nice and tasty-like when you wake up.
Here are some of my faves:
- Banana Nut Overnight Oats
- Fresh Peach Cobbler Overnight Oats
- Chocolate & Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
Speaking of, when it’s time to eat, you can either eat straight out of the fridge or heat up in the microwave for a minute or two – either way is perfectly fine and completely up to you 🙂
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbsp plain greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp raisins can also used dried cherries or cranberries
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Combine the rolled oats, unsweetened almond milk, plain greek yogurt, pure vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and raisins in a mason jar or sealable container. (You can either leave layered like this or stir to combine.)
Place the jar into the fridge for 4-6 hours, preferably overnight.
Can be either be enjoyed cold right out of the fridge or reheated in microwave for 1-2 minutes.
