We use Lactaid milk and use little mason jars with lids.

I use 4 cups of boiling water to 1 cup of steel-cut oats in a big saucepan.  Also stir in 1/4 tsp salt.

I don’t get overnight oats. Are you supposed to eat them cold?

I make overnight oatmeal in a crockpot and use water. It gets thick so I add 2% milk or oat milk to give it a richer tast.

I use 1/3 cup of organic oats and about 2/3 to 3/4 cup of skim milk.  I use a microwaveable bowl.  Stick it in the fridge overnight and then microwave it in the morning for about 90 seconds, stirring half way through.  

I add some sort of fruit and sometimes a few walnuts.  Never any sugar or salt.

Hi @Mindy D 

 

I make overnight oats with either coconut milk or almond milk.  Those are the types I usually buy.  But I have also used soy milk.  

 

I make mine in a tall (i think it's the 4 cup size) ziploc container. 

 

Here's my recipe:

 

1 cup rolled oats (I prefer trader joe's)

1/4 chia seeds

1 tsp cinnamon

a splash of vanilla extract

a dash of nutmeg

2 cups milk

 

Mix the dry ingredients in the ziploc container

mix the wet ingredients in a separate container (I use a measuring cup)

pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients

stir to combine

store in fridge overnight

stir before before portioning out 1 serving

heat in microwave 1 min

 

Note: add in raisins, walnuts, sliced banana or other fruit, brown sugar, maple syrup (whatever you like) before or after heating.  Don't mix in overnight.  

 

@RollTide2008 

No.  I don't eat the overnight oats cold.  Overnight oats in the fridge (without heat) make for a chewier texture that I prefer.  I make the oats in the fridge but heat up in the microwave just before I am ready to eat.

I mix with flavored greek yogurt and lactaid milk, I add cinnamon and vanilla extract.   I put honey in sometimes or just some equal.  I eat it cold. I also add dried rose petals when I have them, my husband brings them from overseas.  I also make an overnight blend with chia seeds also.
