I like creamy oats. Not super wet. Just thick and creamy. So, the idea of overnight oats never really intrigued me. But earlier this week I thought f it let’s give it a try cause most days I get up and breakfast is the last thing on my mind if I have to take the tome to prepare it. Overnight oats takes out the step of boiling water and cooking oats in a pot. At least it does for me. Because what I do is take 1/2 of old fashioned oats I pour over 1 cup of oat milk (or any plant based milk I have) I add cinnamon and nutmeg stir. I then cover the bowel with plastic wrap or foil and put it in the fridge over night.
In the morning all the milk or liquid (you can use water too) has been absorbed into the oats. So they aren’t dry but they aren’t wet they also aren’t mushy. I then add a splash of oat milk over top I don’t mix. I also add vegan butter (I’ve been using Miyokos lately) and warm it in the microwave for 2 minutes. Add whatever toppings I have and there ya go. Creamy oats with minimal effort.
