Yeah, I know I'm a little late to the party on this one. I thought it was just another one of those fad things (I'm talking to you #putaneggonit). However, I found that I do actually like this - such is the way of avocado toast. So here goes my compilation of overnight oats recipes:
Overnight Oats (Adapted from everywhere - where haven't I been?)
2/3 c milk (soy, cow, almond - your choice)
1T maple syrup
1/4 t vanilla
1/4 t cinnamon
1/2 c rolled oats
1/4 c raisins, cranberries, or other dried fruit
1t chia seets
pinch of salt
Mix milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon in your hipster jar*. Add the remaining ingredients and mix. Screw lid on and refrigerate overnight.
I thought I was not going to like the oats cold but they were actually rather nice and I think they would be great on a hot summer morning. Although in the cold winter, I do think there might be a slight heating to take the chill off happening.
So yes I guess I see more overnight oats in my future - unless I forget to make them the night before ;-) I do see much variation - I do want to try this with brown sugar (my fave). I have visions of chocolate (because why not??!). I have aspirations of bananas and fresh strawberries or blueberries (or why not all 3!). Well you get the idea.
*in true hipster fashion, you can just put the lid on and shake
