A few friends of mine have recently been raving about overnight oats. They love that the dish takes almost no time to prepare, requires only a few simple ingredients and best of all, there’s no cooking whatsoever! It’s pretty miraculous considering steel cut oats take an avg of 30 min on the stove top! Also, these oats are eaten cold, so they are a perfect hot weather hearty breakfast food.
Ingredients for 2 servings:
1 cup Vanilla Almond Breeze (or vanilla soymilk or milk or any other similar product that you prefer)
1 cup oats (i mixed 1/2 rolled and 1/2 steel cut to vary the texture)
1 cup plain (or flavored) greek yogurt
a generous sprinkle of brown sugar
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cover. Let sit in fridge overnight. You will notice that the oats absorb the moisture so they are nice and thick in the morning. When you are ready to eat, serve with fruit, cereal, peanut butter, nuts or anything you like. Note: if you wanted to make an extra large batch, you could leave it overnight for two nights.
I ate mine with Oh Nuts cranberry pecans , almond slivers, and Newman’s Own Sweet Enough Flakes N Strawberries cereal. As many of you know, I’m not a truly devoted oats fan, but I have to agree with my friends on this one. The oats were creamy and delicious! The best part was that they kept me full and satisfied for several hours. If you haven’t hopped on the cold oats bandwagon just yet, all aboard!
