Could this be the newest craze? I definitely think so…
Overnight oats are an easy and healthy alternative to oatmeal. Those prepackaged oatmeal packets are full of sugar and just aren’t good for you at all. Overnight oats is when you take plain oats (I like rolled oats) and mix them different liquids to soak up overnight. The most common way to make these oats is to use 1/3 cup of oats, 1/3 cup of milk/almond milk, and 1/3 cup of greek yogurt. Mix it up, find a container, and put it in the refrigerator overnight! In the morning you will have soft creamy oats for you to enjoy! Most people don’t leave it plain like that.. There are endless possibilities to how you want to flavor it. You can add things like:
and of course FRUIT!
Here are the products I used!
This is what it should look like after you mix it up!
After about 10 hours of sleep my overnight oats are ready for me to eat!
I added banana’s, strawberries, and more cinnamon! Doesn’t it look pretty?
This was my first time making overnight oats & they were delicious! I didn’t add nearly enough milk because I didn’t think it needed it. But next time I will definitely add the 1/3 cup like I was supposed to! And whatever you do, don’t add the fruit until the morning, otherwise they will be very soggy and not taste very good. There are numerous possibilities for overnight oats, be creative! If you’re stuck on what kind you want to make google is your best friend. I even saw a pumpkin pie recipe for overnight oats, perfect for fall mornings!
