What are overnight oats?
If you have never had overnight oats you are in for a treat! Overnight oats are a quick and easy breakfast that is made by soaking rolled oats over night in a liquid. Depending on the recipe some overnight oats recipes use yogurt, others use milk and I have seen some that use water.
We like using yogurt and milk when making overnight oats. I find that they oats keep their texture better and I don’t end up with some slimy smushy something in my jar in the morning.
I also like using yogurt because it gives more nutritional value to the oats and it gives amazing flavor too!
How Long do Overnight Oats keep in the fridge?
I have found that overnight oats are good for 2-3 days after I have made them. Any longer then that and they get a different texture that I am not a fan of.
How Do you heat overnight oats?
Personally I like to eat my overnight oats right out of the fridge, cold. My kids prefer to heat theirs up. If you are wanting to heat up overnight oats just heat them in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
If you do not have a lot of extra room in your container put the overnight oats into a different container to heat up because they will boil a little bit when you are cooking them in the microwave.
My kids also like to add more fresh peaches to the top of their peach oats in the morning when they eat it.
What are the best Oats for overnight oats?
The best oats to use are Old-Fashioned rolled oats. You can use quick oats but they will end up being softer then if you used rolled oats. I do not suggest using steel cut oats, they need more liquid then the others and a longer time in the fridge to get the softness you want your oats to have.
Canned or fresh peaches?
We prefer fresh peaches, however if you only have canned on hand they will work too.
Overnight Oats Ingredients
