After reading so much about overnight oats on the various health blogs I visit, I had to give it a try. For some reason though, I just didn't like them. My husband did and even just prepped the same thing for tomorrow morning though.
Anyway, I think it may have been my choice of oats. I used five-minute Irish Oatmeal and I think it just soaked up too much of the other ingredients and left me with mush. Cold mush. Ick!
But, if you are like my husband, perhaps you'll like it. Here's how we did it:
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup fat free yogurt
1/3 cup skim milk (almond for the Mr.)
1 heaping tbsp chia seeds (too much if you ask me)
handful of dried cranberries
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix these ingredients in your breakfast bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Anybody else have a good overnight oat recipe?
Here are a few blogs I read where fabulous things are done with oatmeal:
