  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup milk any kind
  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar honey or maple syrup may be used instead
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon butter extract
  • 2 tablespoons sprinkles plus more for topping


  • In a medium bowl, mix together oats, milk, yogurt, sugar, vanilla extract, and butter extract.
  • Pour into two mason jars or an airtight container(s) with lid. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, so that the oats will soften and absorb the liquid.
  • Remove from refrigerator, add sprinkles to oats, and stir. Top with more sprinkles, if desired.
