Tools You’ll Need
The beautiful thing about overnight oats is that it doesn’t require every measuring cup and dish in the kitchen! Here are some of the tools you’ll need for this recipe.
Here are a few tips and tricks for how to make the most delicious overnight oats!
- Too soupy or too thick? If your oats seem too thick add a bit more milk. Remember that oats soak up a lot of liquid. If your oats are too soupy, just add a few more tablespoons of oats to soak up excess milk.
- Taste test. Everyone likes their oats a little different. Taste your overnight oats before putting them in the fridge. If you like your oats sweeter, add a teaspoon or two more of your sweetener or a pinch of salt to bring out all the flavors.
- You can double or triple overnight oats. If you are making overnight oats for a group of people, these recipes are very easy to double or even triple!
- Meal prep. We love overnight oats because they are easy to prep at the beginning of the week so you have a healthy breakfast for the whole week.
- Toppings. Have fun with your topping options! We love to top our overnight oats with nut butter, fresh fruit, seeds, or granola! ave fun with it.
