Why We Like It
CRAZY GOOD "stepped up" overnight oatmeal -- delicious flavor combination! Soaking oats in milk overnight and eating them cold in the morning is “the Swiss way” of enjoying oats. With just a little prep the night before, this incredibly delicious, cholesterol-sponging breakfast can be served in individual jars, or in a large bowl to be enjoyed “family style,” which is perfect for overnight guests! This recipe serves two, so multiply accordingly. These keep great in the fridge for 2 days (and 5 days if fruit is not added until serving time).
Start the Oatmeal:
Add to a bowl and stir well.
If desired, divide into two single serving containers (like pint-sized mason jars) or skip this step and serve family style.
Finish and Refrigerate Overnight:
Layer into the bowl, or divide ingredients evenly between the two single serving containers, creating layers.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Serve and Enjoy!
When ready to eat, stir and enjoy!
Because chia seeds absorb so much liquid, they help give overnight oats a great texture! Chia seeds don’t really add any flavor, but in addition to helping provide a great texture, they are a nutritional powerhouse.
You can use steel cut oats instead of the rolled oats, but the oatmeal will have a chewier texture. Try using half steel cut and half rolled oats for a great texture combination!
