Berry Vanilla Overnight Oats and Quinoa

These are great for when you need a quick breakfast to grab and eat (or take!)

1/4 cup uncooked old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup cooked quinoa (you could do 1/2 cup of oats instead, but I used half oats and added quinoa to get my starch)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup low fat Greek yogurt
1 tsp dried chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup berries

(Eat with protein to complete meal)


In a jar, add oats, quinoa, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, milk, yogurt, and vanilla.  Put lid on jar and shake until well combined.   Add berries and stir to mix in.   Return lid to jar and refrigerate overnight or up to 3 days.  Eat chilled.

  1. I've done this with gluten free oatmeal, used Kefir instead of milk (have to get plain to cut out the sugar), added flax seed & nuts too. I like the idea of adding vanilla & using yogurt.
