WHAT OTHER FLAVORS CAN WE MAKE?

WHAT ARE OVERNIGHT OATS?

Overnight oats are basically a “no-cook oatmeal porridge”. Overnight oats are a quick and easy method of making breakfast ahead of time. Instead of cooking oatmeal on the stovetop, you soak the raw oats with milk of your choice. That soaking process allows the oats to absorb the liquids and soften them enough to eat uncooked.

WHAT MILK CAN WE USE TO MAKE OVERNIGHT OATS?

To make overnight oats you basically can use any dairy-free milk, cow’s milk or any liquid. Popular choices: Almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, hazelnut milk, soy milk, hemp milk and more.

HOW TO MAKE BASIC OVERNIGHT OATS?

To make basic overnight oats you need only 2 ingredients: rolls oats and liquids (1:1 ratio), then you can add seeds, nuts, nut butter, fruits, yogurt and more.

CAN WE USE INSTANT/QUICK OATS TO MAKE OVERNIGHT OATS?

Old-fashioned rolled oats are the best when it comes to making overnight oats, they will give, creamy and chewy texture. If you using quick oats or instant oats, they will end up too soft and texture will be to ruddy. My suggestion: use only rolled oats.

HOW LONG CAN WE STORE OVERNIGHT OATS?

Overnight oats can be stored in the fridge, for up to 4-5 days.

DO YOU EAT OVERNIGHT OATS HOT OR COLD?

Overnight oats can be eaten hot or cold. I usually just take them out of the fridge and eat them right away. To heat overnight oats, microwave for 45-60 seconds, or transfer to a saucepan and heat over medium heat until warmed through.

WHAT SWEETENERS CAN WE USE TO MAKE OVERNIGHT OATS?

In most of my recipes I use maple syrup or agave syrup, because they are the most accessible. But, you can use any sweetener that you like, such as: Honey, stevia, date syrup, sugar or even dates. You can add more or less of the sweetener to control the sweetness.
