Overnight Oats

If you’ve never heard of overnight oats before, here is a brief explanation. Overnight oats are a no-cook method of making oatmeal. Instead of cooking your oats with liquid on the stove or in the microwave, you mix rolled oats with the liquid and other mix-ins, and let it rest in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, you have a pudding-like porridge that is perfect for easy grab-and-go breakfasts. It doesn’t have the same texture as hot/stove-top oats. It’s creamier, denser, and in the opinion of many, so much tastier.

There are a million-and-one recipes and methods for making overnight oats out there, so we are going to suggest one, for now.
