Great Harvest Bread
Real Food. Real People.

 Many of us are rushed off our feet in the mornings, but it’s vital to get a good breakfast if you’re to stay energized through a full day. Great Harvest in Newtonville have the perfect solution: overnight oats. You can prepare these quickly of an evening and simply grab them out of the fridge in the morning, no cooking required! Not only are they absurdly easy, but oats are a whole grain so they’re healthy too.

Overnight oats base:

  • ⅓ cup rolled oats (not instant or quick-cooking oats)
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ⅓ cup plain yogurt
  • A pinch of salt
Simply mix everything together in a suitable container and refrigerate overnight. Simple! Don’t worry if the mix looks a little watery when you first combine the ingredients; the oats will absorb the liquid and turn a delightfully creamy consistency.


This is where oats really come into their own. The base is so versatile that you can add virtually anything you fancy (nuts, fruit, jelly, etc.) before you enjoy your oats. Here are just a few of the variations we most enjoy:

  • Peanut butter & jelly - simply stir through some natural peanut butter and your favorite jelly for a nostalgic and filling breakfast.
  • Banana chocolate - freeze a banana overnight, then in the morning blend it together with a tablespoon of cocoa powder and stir this through your oats; who says you can’t have dessert for breakfast?
  • Apple, raisin & cinnamon - grate half an apple into your oat mixture and add in a handful of raisins along with a pinch of cinnamon; perfect for wintry mornings!
  • Blueberry pie - cook down a handful of blueberries with 2 teaspoons of brown sugar and add this to your oats for a fruity twist.
  • Pumpkin pie - try adding a few spoons of canned pumpkin puree and a little mixed spice and cinnamon; this is a great way to see out the end of fall.
  • Coconut dream - mix a mashed banana into your oat mix, then in the morning sprinkle generously with roasted coconut for a tropical taste sensation.
