Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I use any type of oats for this recipe? A: Absolutely! While old-fashioned rolled oats are recommended for the best texture, you can use quick oats, steel-cut oats, or even certified gluten-free oats if you prefer.

Q: What if I don’t have Greek yogurt? A: You can use regular yogurt or even a non-dairy yogurt alternative. The key is to maintain that creamy texture which makes these oats so delightful.

Tips and Tricks

  • For the best results, give your oats a good stir before leaving them in the fridge to ensure all ingredients are well combined.
  • If you’re using steel-cut oats, remember they will have a chewier texture compared to old-fashioned oats.
  • Add the rainbow sprinkles just before serving to keep their color vibrant.


  • Milk Options: Feel free to use any kind of milk you prefer, such as almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk.
  • Sweeteners: Swap honey with maple syrup or brown sugar for a different sweetness.
  • Add-Ins: Mix in peanut butter, almond butter, chocolate chips, or fresh fruit for extra flavor and texture.
