Fig, cinnamon, vanilla, chia, coconut and honey overnight oats recipe


  • 1 Fig
  • 50g cut oats
  • 3 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 120g yogurt (I used Tesco protein yogurt but natural or Greek yogurt is fine)
  • Shredded coconut
  • Whole Milk
  • Honey


I always add a couple of splashes of whole milk to the oats before adding everything else as I find it softens them better than yogurt alone. Mix the milk with the oats, add the yogurt and combine with the oats.

Add 3 teaspoons chia seeds, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract and the 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix to combine and add a little more milk if it is a bit too thick for you liking. Remember the chia seeds swell and absorb a lot of the moisture leaving a gell texture overnight.

In the morning or following day depending on when you want to eat the proats, slice the fig and place on top, scatter a few shards of the coconut and drizzle a healthy amount of honey on top.

Mix to combine then sit back and enjoy with a nice cuppa.

Superfood overnight oats

Coconut, chia seed, bee pollen and honey overnight oats


  • 50g oats
  • 125ml protein yogurt
  • splash of whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 an apple either chopped finely or julienned
  • 2 teaspoons shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons bee pollen


Mix the oats, chia seeds, coconut and honey with the splash of milk as i don’t find it mixes as well as just with the yogurt on its own. Add the yogurt, apple and bee pollen and mix to combine making sure it’s fully incorporated so you don’t have clumps of dry oats in the mix.

Leave overnight in a kilner jar to soak and for the bee pollen to break down its outer shell, leaving you with all it’s honey bee goodness. Enjoy for breakfast, mid morning snack or post gym recovery meal. It will leave you feeling full and satisfied for hours.

Coconut, papaya, chia and honey proats overnight oats recipe


  • Oats (Depending on how hungry you are, I usually add 1 third of a kilner jar as they expand with the wet ingredients)
  • 3 teaspoons chia seed
  • 2 tablespoons desicated coconut
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Splash whole milk
  • 125ml greek yogurt
  • 1 papaya chut into chunks


Add the oats, coconut, chia seed, honey and a splash of milk to a kilner jar and mix to combine dry ingredients with the milk. Top with the Greek yogurt and mix again until all lumps have been incorporated into the yogurt and milk.

Close the clasp on the kilner jar and refrigerate overnight. Remove from the fridge, add a splash more milk if the mixture is too dry and top with the papaya chunks before spooning into one hungry mouth.
