Why We Like It
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). Check out our other recipes such as Carrot Cake Overnight Oatmeal and Blueberry Maple Overnight Oatmeal!
Make the Oatmeal:
Add to a large bowl and stir to combine.
If desired, divide into two single serving containers (like pint-sized mason jars) or skip this step and serve family style.
Layer into the bowl, or divide ingredients evenly between the two single-serve containers, creating layers. Put the lids on and refrigerate overnight.
Serve and Enjoy!
If you use half-pint size mason jars, they will be filled to the top, or if you use pint size mason jars, there will be a little more room for stirring in the morning just before serving.
Feel free to substitute half of the old fashioned rolled oats with steel cut oats, for a delightful chewy texture.
