Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup assorted fresh fruit
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, toasted

Directions

In a small container or mason jar, combine oats, milk, yogurt and honey. Top with fruit and nuts. Seal; refrigerate overnight. Yield: 1 serving.
  • Chocolate-Cherry Oats: Use cherry-flavored yogurt; add 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder, and top with fresh or frozen pitted cherries.
  • Banana Bread Oats: Replace honey with maple syrup and stir in 1/2 mashed banana and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Top with toasted pecans.
  • Carrot Cake Oats: Add 2 Tbsp grated carrots and substitute spreadable cream cheese for the yogurt.
  • Pina Colada Oats: Add 1/2 mashed banana, 2 Tbsp. crushed pineapple and 1 Tbsp shredded coconut to oat mixture.


  • Test Kitchen Tips
  • Make this dairy-free by using 1/2 cup soy or coconut milk instead of milk and yogurt.
  • This can be prepared several days in advance.
  • 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.
