Total Time:5 minutes
Yield:1 serving 1x
3/4 cup any milk
2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup any oats
In any glass container with a tight seal lid, add milk, maple syrup, vanilla and oats. If you would like to add toppings in the morning, use bigger jars.
Stir well with a spoon, put lids on and refrigerate overnight.
When ready to eat, stir and top with favourite toppings: nuts, berries, fruit, coconut flakes etc. If overnight oatmeal is too thick, adjust with milk. Also add more maple syrup if desired.
Store: Refrigerate for up to 5 days.
Consistency of oatmeal will depend on the type of oats. Quick oats – soft and mushy. Rolled oats – soft with a chew. Steel cut oats – very chewy and runny. Steel cut quick cooking oats – softer with a chew and bite.
I wouldn’t recommend using honey because it doesn’t dissolve well in cold milk.
Any sweetener will work.
