Kefir Overnight Oats - easy breakfast - overnight oats are a filling and sugar free breakfast

Kefir overnight oats are the easiest breakfast ever! And will leave your tummy very very happy.

This recipe came from having bought way too much buttermilk, which we drink like you would chocolate milk here in Germany. After having some success I thought kefir would probably also work. Well, kefir won my tastebuds over by a landslide. I like the fermented quality the kefir adds (it took me a few tries to get used to it), but if you still aren’t a fan, a touch of maple syrup will take out that fermented zing.

These oats are creamy, soft, and seriously easy to digest. They take no time to make at night and are a great grab ‘n go breakfast.

Flavour up your Kefir Overnight Oats

Since kefir overnight oats are quite neutral in flavour you can top them off with whatever you fancy. My favourite way to eat them is to add frozen raspberries. Add the frozen raspberries to the top of the ats when you make them and by the morning the raspberries have thawed, and the juices run beautifully into the oats.

  • Hey Kortney,
    have you tried to make Kefir yourself? It is much richer in the good bacteria than store bought ones and may rebuild some of your gut flora. It’s very, very easy to make. Just google it to find out how to make it. Fermented vegetables like Sauerkraut should also be very good against allergies.
    I’m trying it out now.
    All the best!

    • Hi Kirsten. I’ve make kefir once before, but was a little nervous about the process. We make our own kombucha at home and I would like to try water kefir. My summer project is to start making sauerkraut. So far I’ve made one batch that worked pretty well. How are your ferments going?

  • Not clear of you mean milk kefir or water kefir. I leave oats, chia, raisins and some water-kefir and water soaking overnight room temperature. Next morning it will be pre-digested. Very interesting way to begin the day.
