How To Make Overnight Oats

mixed and pre-mixed

STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR CONTAINER

Grab a couple of pint-sized jars or bowls with tight-fitting lids. This recipe yields two servings but can also be combined into one large jar or glass container. Mason jars work great.

STEP 2: MEASURE AND MIX

You’ll simply use a medium-sized bowl to add and mix all the ingredients. Then either divide the overnight oats into two small glass containers or use one big one. I usually use two pint-sized mason jars. Keep in mind your oats will expand a bit once they soak up the liquid so always leave some room at the top.

STEP 3: STORE IN FRIDGE

Once you’ve mixed the ingredients and either divided them into two containers or placed them in a single one, simply store the overnight oats in the fridge.

Store them for at least 4 hours or overnight. 

Overnight oats will last up to 5 days so you can have the second serving the following day or a couple of days later.

STEP 4: SERVE WARM OR COLD

You can eat overnight oats warm or cold. That’s why they make for easy meal prep.

Simply grab your container and go. Or warm the overnight oats in the microwave for a minute or two or in a saucepan on the stove. Warm to your liking.

ADDITIONAL OPTION (NO-OVERNIGHT NEEDED)

Do you like your oatmeal warm? You can make this recipe in the morning. No need to store overnight. 

Simply mix all of the ingredients together and cook them on the stove or in the microwave that day. And enjoy! 

To cook on the stove, add the ingredients to a saucepan and cook on medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes. Stirring occasionally. 

You can also place the ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for about a minute or two. Until it’s warmed to your liking.
