To make overnight oats, you stir oatmeal, milk, and yogurt together and let it sit overnight in the fridge. I think it’s a “thing” that exploded the past year; now it’s all over Pinterest and Reddit.
B first told me about ages ago because it’s really a easy on-the-go, already prepared breakfast for when you’re rushing to school. I told him that sounded gross and soggy. I despise soggy anything; the oats in my oatmeal are dry and practically raw when I eat it, and I always eat cereal and milk separately because even a few minutes of sitting on milk ruins the texture for me.
Well, one year later, I finally tried this overnight oats thing, expecting gross, soggy slop.
I was wrong. It’s delicious and fluffy. You win this round, B.
1/2 cup steel cut oats
1/3 cup milk or almond milk
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
black sesame seeds
Combine oats, milk, yogurt, and cinnamon (adjust milk to desired consistency). Set in fridge overnight. The next morning, top with berries and sesame seed.
OMG a win for the boyfriend! I shall cherish this.
I have to try this, I was expecting it also to be kind of a soggy mush so good to know that it's tasty.
