This is an easy recipe that you can make the night before, and take along with you the next day. I often take this with me to work. It is really easy to make and super delicious.
3/4 cup oats
1 cup vanilla flavored yogurt ( I use vanilla flavored coconut yogurt)
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp flax seeds
1/2 almond milk
maple syrup (optional)
1 peach diced into cubes
- in a mason jar combine the oats, chia, flax, yogurt and almond milk. Stir the ingredients together and top with the maple syrup and peaches. Attach the lid and store in the refrigerator overnight.
In this recipe, I often use different flavors of yogurt and fruits. It depends on what I want at the time that I make the overnight oats. I mainly use vanilla yogurt because it is versatile and you can add any flavor to it.
Adding the yogurt to the overnight oats adds a thick creaminess that just bumps up the goodness of the oats, you get your probiotics and calcium. Adding the chia and flax you get more fiber and it helps keep you fuller for longer. Adding the fruit help you digest your food better and plus it is just delicious and good for you.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
