Cinnamon Bun Overnight Oats

Welcome to the world of breakfast decadence.
Overnight oats are my new favorite thing. Seriously... you can eat all these wonderful flavors of chewy and creamy goodness and it's GOOD FOR YOU. 
Not even lying.
(Be sure to check out our other overnight flavors - PB & J Overnight Oats, Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats.)
This version tastes just like a cinnamon bun. For realz. 
A big, ooey gooey, cinnamon and cream cheesy cinnamon bun but for only 243 calories, 42 carbs, 4 fat, 17 protein, and 4 fiber. (According to Myfitnesspal)
Feel free to indulge!

Cinnamon Bun Overnight Oats

1/3 cup 0 fat Greek yogurt (plain)
1/3 cup 1% milk
1/3 cup oats
1 tsp flax
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp 95% fat free cream cheese
4 pkg Stevia Sugar Twin

In a small bowl stir together the Greek yogurt, milk, oats, flax, and brown sugar until well mixed.

In another small bowl (OR I use the measuring cup from the yogurt, etc..), stir together the cream cheese and Stevia.

Take half of the cream cheese mixture and stir it into the oat mixture.
Then, place the oat mixture into a bowl (or mason jar). 
Take the remaining cream cheese mixture and drizzle it on top of the oats. (I put mine in a little Ziplock bag as I find it easier to do.) 

Cover and place in fridge overnight - at least 8 hours. 
It will be ready to serve as soon as the oats soak up the liquid and soften. 

Can you hear that?
That's the sounds of your taste buds singing for joy.

  4. I love your oatmeal experiments. I always want to try each one.
    You made me laugh when you said that you use your measuring cup as the mixing bowl. As someone with no dishwasher, I always look for a way to use the least amount of dishes possible.
    Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you Michelle :) (I'm all about the least amount of dishes too!)

  5. Looks amazing! Thank you so much for linking up at Tasty Tuesday! Your recipe has been pinned to the Tasty Tuesday Pinterest board! Please join us again this week!

  6. How big of a mason jar/bowl does this make?

    1. The ramekin that it is in in the photos holds exactly 1 cup.

  7. what type of oatmeal? thanks

    1. I used old fashioned oats. You could probably use quick oats but the texture would be different. :)

  8. Can one substitute for flax?
