If you’ve never heard of overnight oats before, let us give you a quick little primer. Overnight oats are a no-cook method of making oatmeal. Instead of cooking your oats with liquid on the stove or in the microwave, you mix rolled (AKA: old-fashioned) oats with the liquid and other mix-ins, and let it rest in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, you have a pudding-like porridge that is perfect for easy grab-and-go breakfasts. It doesn’t have the same texture as hot/stove-top oats. It’s creamier, denser, and in my opinion, so much tastier. I’d take a jar of overnight oats over hot oats any day!
There are a million-and-one recipes and methods for making overnight oats out there, but we're going to show you how to make eight of our favorite overnight oats recipes. You can’t go wrong with these!
Before we get started though, let's talk a little bit about overnight oats equipment. You can easily whip up overnight oats in just a regular bowl or a food storage container with a lid. But you know me, we love a good mason jar!
