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.
