Overnight Maple Oatmeal Recipe

I tasted muesli on a trip to Switzerland, and when I came home, I made it my way. Keep things interesting (and avoid the mid-morning munchies) by adding different fruits and nuts every day. —Maddie Kirk, Springfield, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • Assorted fresh fruit


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine oats, milk, syrup and vanilla. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
  • 2. Just before serving, stir in yogurt. Top with walnuts and fruit. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

"You can make it more diabetic friendly by using plain fat-free yogurt instead of the vanilla yogurt, Greek yogurt if you want even more protein, and replacing the maple syrup with sugar-free syrup. That will cut carbs and fat.

The Nutritional Facts for the recipe as is - 36 grams of carbs, but you have to add the carbs for any fruit you inlcude. So, it could put you over the recommended amount of carbs for a diabetic meal, which is 45-60."

"No, jenn, the oatmeal is not cooked. It sits overnight and soaks up the milk and becomes softer, and it's not a hot cereal, it's eaten cold and requires no cooking at all."
