Overnight oats are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast for those busy weekday mornings. They’re prepared the night before and left to soak in the refrigerator overnight. That means no cooking, and no mess to clean up before you head out the door.
To start, grab a jar or container and some old-fashioned rolled oats. Add in your choice of liquid, like almond milk, to soften the oats. The more liquid you add, the thinner the oats will be. If you like your oatmeal on the creamier side, adding some yogurt to the mixture will do the trick.
Now for the fun part: You can customize overnight oats to your heart's content. Mix in fruit, peanut butter, cinnamon, chia seeds—whatever floats your boat. Cover, and leave in the refrigerator to “cook” overnight.
Here are three recipes we love, but the possibilities are endless. So, go ahead and get creative!
