Milk – I use whole milk to make overnight oats rich and creamy. For a healthier option, use low-fat milk or skim milk.
You can also use plant-based milk like coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc.
Oats – Overnight oats are best made using rolled oats (old-fashioned oats) as they soak up the flavor without getting mushy.
Nutella – It is the star ingredient of this recipe. If your Nutella has become thick, microwave it for a few seconds.
Others – You will also need chia seeds and maple syrup or honey.
Add a scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein powder to the oats mixture if you want to add some protein to your breakfast.

Top the ready oats with sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, sliced bananas, or chopped toasted nuts like hazelnuts, almonds, cashew nuts, etc.
You can top them with Nutella or other nut butter like peanut butter or almond butter.
Crunchy granola is also a great topping as it adds texture to the overnight oats.
Chocolate shavings, coconut flakes etc are smore more topping options.
Nutella Oats can be stored for 3-4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
