An easy and nutritious make-ahead breakfast with oats, skyr (Icelandic yogurt), almond milk and chia seeds.  Topped with a simple Blueberry Cardamom Compote, these overnight oats are a very delicious and Nordic way start to your day!


For the Oats:

1 ⅓ cup old-fashioned rolled oats

¼ cup chia seeds

½ teaspoon fine sea salt

1 ⅓ cup plain skyr (Icelandic yogurt) or Greek yogurt

1 ⅓ cup milk of choice (I like unsweetened almond)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

¼ cup pure maple syrup

Blueberry Cardamom Compote and Nordic Morning Granola (or store bought) for topping


Optional Toppings:

Toasted nuts

Coconut flakes

Additional maple syrup or honey

Additional skyr or yogurt

Additional milk

A dollop of nut butter (I like roasted almond butter with mine)


  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a medium bowl.  Cover and transfer to the fridge.  Let sit overnight or for at least 3 hours.  If you want to store the oats in individual portions, simply divide the mixture between 4 small jars and cover.  Overnight oats will keep well-covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.

  2. When you are ready to serve, top each portion of oats with a generous dollop of Blueberry Cardamom Compote and Granola and any optional toppings as desired. Enjoy!
