I like LOVE oatmeal. Like really, really love oatmeal. So much in fact, that if I could MARRY oatmeal, we’d have been to Vegas YEARS ago!
And the best part…. it is SO good for you!!I’ve been hearing about ‘overnight oats’ for awhile now, but it took me until last month to google it to see exactly what they are…
I’m so glad that I did… I need up finding Kath eats real food. Kerf for short. Not only is she an inspiration for her weight loss story, but her blog is very informative!!!!
So what did I learn there? All about overnight oats 😉
They are basically a oatmeal that you don’t cook! You start by mixing your oatmeal with whatever liquid that you like the night before you want to eat them …
I mix 1/3 of a cup of TJ’s quick steel cut oats with 2/3 cup fat free milk.. I mix it in my cute little rubbermaid container, ( with the top on) give it a little shakey-shake and put in them in the fridge and head off to sleep.
In the morning, take the oatmeal from it’s cute container and that is your base for your oatmeal. The oats will have absorbed the liquid & are now ready to be topped with endless varieties!
This time of year, I am enjoying it cold, but if you prefer it warm, just warm it in the microwave!
This morning I topped my awesome oats with
This is a new product to me. It is SOO cool.. It is stored at room temperature, & is the consistency of melted peanut butter but when it gets cold (like when added to my overnight oats) It gets a sort of ‘shell’ like the chocolate shell on an ice cream cone!! It is sooo tasty!! A bit on the pricey side, but I’ve been looking into a way to make it at home, making it far more affordable.
I can’t wait for tomorrow morning!
