My new favorite, and current obsession, is overnight oats. I don’t think I blogged about it, but I’ve been thinking about oatmeal lately. It’s good for you, and though I ruled it out as a kid, I thought I might like it.
So a few weeks ago I made some hot oatmeal in my rice cooker…and it was okay. Not really any flavor though, and by the third or fourth bite the texture was making me a little gag-y.
Enter overnight oats. Ryan and Ang introduced me to them on our Okoboji weekend. And then I realized that my current favorite blog, Kath Eats Real Food, has been talking about them too (somehow I assumed she cooked them).
So the idea is simple–mix oats with yogurt and/or milk, let them sit overnight, and voila. They are a bit chewy, flavorful, cool, and ready to be topped. I am a huge fan.
