Recipe Tips
  • Keep it rolling. Old-fashioned, often called rolled oats, are the best option, but quick oats work, too.
  • Add-ins are key. Choose extra ingredients, like yogurt, protein powder, spices, chia seeds, coconut flakes, mini chocolate chips, fresh fruit, or nuts for more flavor and health benefits. Or, choose warm spices, like a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg.
  • Don't rush. Though you only need 2 hours, they're best after an entire night of chilling.
  • Make more. This recipe is perfect for meal-prepping breakfast 2-3 days ahead of time and cutting down your morning routine.
