WAYS TO MAKE OVERNIGHT OATS
Are overnight oats healthy?
Overnight oats are a hearty yet frugal breakfast option. Oats are loaded with good-for-you nutrients like fiber, protein, magnesium, potassium, and omega 3 fatty acids. Bonus is that oats don’t contain added sugar so you can keep them sugar free if you so desire. Need to make them gluten free? Use certified gluten free oats. Dairy free is easy too if you use your favorite milk alternative. Overnight oats are loaded with possibilities.
Do you eat overnight oats warm or cold?
This is a matter of preference. When it’s cold outside, warm is the way to go. When it’s warm outside then cold wins. Everyone has their own preference as to the temperature they want their oats before eating. The brownie batter overnight oats are absolutely heavenly warmed up. I could eat several jars worth. Oh yes.
How do overnight oats work?
Usually oats work by boiling them to cook. When you make overnight oats, the oats soak in the liquid making them soften just as if you cooked them. The key here is that they have to sit overnight. You can’t make them before you get in the shower and expect them to be yummy when you get out. They need to the time to sit and chill.
What do overnight oats taste like?
Overnight oats taste like creamy porridge. Yummy, smooth, spoonable porridge. It’s yumminess in a bowl. Don’t let them sit long enough or put in too little liquid and you will not get yumminess. Leave them overnight and put in all the liquid even if it looks like too much.
Can overnight oats go bad?
Yes. Overnight oats can last as long as 5 days in the fridge but their yumminess will be affected for real. I would not eat them past 2 or 3 days unless you like eating slimy things.
