What are overnight oats?

Overnight Oats are oats that sit overnight in a liquid mixture. The liquid helps soak the oats so that it’s almost like cooking them, without actually turning on the stove. Enjoy the oats straight from the refrigerator cold or warm them up. They are easy on your stomach and are packed with flavor and nutrients.

Tips for making the best oats

  • Feel free to switch out the apples for your favorite oatmeal toppings. We also love enjoying this recipe with strawberries, blueberries, almonds or coconut.
  • You can adjust the consistency by adding more oats or milk. We like our oats thiner, so we add even more milk.
  • You can layer the oats and apples by alternating between oats and freshly chopped apples.
  • Use a mason jar or resealable container to store the oats.
  • Refrigerate the oats overnight for up to 3 days. Serve them warm or cold.
