Help, I can’t seem to find the nutritional info on this recipe. Thanks in advance
Hi, Laura! We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d recommend using an online nutritional calculator like this one. Thanks!
Couldn’t you heat it up?
Oh wait, you eat this cold? Hmmm… I tried something similar a while back, and I found cold oatmeal to be very unappetizing. Oh well. I will stick to my HOT loaded oatmeal (I do fresh or dried fruit, chia/hemp/flax seed combo, nuts, coconut oil and honey or condensed coconut milk) and y’all enjoy! :)
I’m with you. I don’t understand the hype around cold oatmeal. I don’t like it. Is it even healthy to eat it raw? Just wondering.
Overnight Oats Have Increased Digestibility. … This makes them easier to digest than oats that have been cooked, which is great for everyone, but is especially helpful for people with gluten sensitivities
Once I mastered chia pudding, I had to try this! So great because I can make ahead and stick in the fridge for anyone who has to leave early in the morning and needs a quick breakfast. Thank you Sally!
Thank you for this recipe! I made it earlier this week and finally had the chance to grab and go with my cup this morning — delicious and so filling! I added golden raisins and sunflower seeds because that was what I had on hand. I’ll definitely be making this again. Many thanks.
Sally (and Emma :) thanks for including the chia in this recipe. Good choice! I have opted to use 4x4x2″ high plastic containers, as I love oatmeal and prefer to start with bites of it and add the toppings as I go.
Also want to comment on the bit of floral print in one of the pics. This print (or very similar ones) has been around for at least 70 years. It is like seeing an old friend! I can remember it in my parents toaster cover, some kitchen curtains and a blouse. Just want you to know how much I appreciate the ‘little things’ you do!
Aw, thanks, Sandy!
Could I substitute cooked steel cut oats instead of rolled?
Hi, Leslie! Yes, I think steel cut oats would work just fine. In fact, you may not even need to cook them. Check out this recipe for overnight steel cut oats (my favorite!): How to Make Overnight Oats
Inspirational food styling!! Thanks for sharing! I’m going to make it tomorrow for my family. Would love to do a collaboration with you!
Can you double the oats and milk of choice and leave out the yogurt?
Hi, Lea — Sure! I think that would work. I usually use a ratio of 1/4 cup of oats to 1/2 – 3/4 cup of milk in my usual overnight oats. I’d start there and fiddle with it until you’re happy with the consistency!
Is the oatmeal cooked ahead?
Nope! This a no-cook recipe. The oats absorb moisture and turn creamy and chewy. You won’t be eating raw, dry oats!
