Cottage Cheese Overnight Oats ingredients

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Rolled oats: Also known as old-fashioned oats, these oats have a hearty, chewy texture. You can also use instant oats. Do not use steel cut oats as they don’t soften the same way.
  • Almond milk: I used almond milk but you can use any milk you like.
  • Cottage cheese: I used 4% milk fat but 2% works well, too. Cottage cheese is a good source of protein and calcium. You can also make this recipe with Greek yogurt if you don’t have cottage cheese.
  • Honey or maple syrup: Feel free to substitute with any sweetener you like.
  • Vanilla: A splash of vanilla extract adds a little sweetness but you can skip it if you don’t have it.
  • Fresh or frozen berries: I used a blend of frozen raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries.
