4 Overnight Oats to Start the Day

Posted on

What are overnight oats?

Overnight oats are a method of making oatmeal that involves no cooking at all. Instead of cooking the oats with liquid in the microwave or on the stove, you mix the oats with the liquid and other mix-ins and let the whole mix rest in the fridge overnight (or, if you forgot to do it at night, they can rest for just a few hours). If you leave the oats in the fridge at night, you are going to have a pudding-like porridge in the morning, and it is going to be perfect for easy grab-and-go breakfasts.
