Cold Oats

Okay….so if you guys read other blogs, you have probably heard of overnight oats. I’ve gotten into calling them cold oats, but whatever you call them…they’re AMAZING.

I haven’t been craving hot oatmeal lately (since it’s been so toasty warm this summer) and I am even wondering if I’ll stick with the cold oats in the winter since I am so in love.

If you’re looking for 5 different ways to eat oatmeal…check out the post I wrote awhile back. And now, if you’re looking to be amazed by a wonderful summer time breakfast try out what’s below. :)

This makes a pretty big serving (I work out in the morning so I am pretty hungry…you can cut in 1/2 or do 3/4 if you don’t want as much.) Mix the following ingredients and place in the fridge overnight.

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup almond milk (or other milk of your choice)
  • Cinnnamon (optional, but SO good)

You can also add in some flax (this hurts my stomach so I stay away from it) or some chia seeds or some mashed up banana if you want to get creative and add additional nutritional value.

In the morning add some berries (frozen or fresh) and nuts (walnuts, almonds or even almond butter). It’s a filling, nutritious and delicious breakfast of champions…or sistas. :)

    Thanks for posting this! I was doubtful, but the Internet seemed to be all over cold oats, so I gave it a try using your version–equal parts oats and (cow’s) milk, with a dash of cinnamon. It was great! It was delicious, and to my surprise the milk was sweet enough that I didn’t have to add sugar or anything. Plus, it saved a lot of time and dishes compared to cooking oatmeal on the hob. I’ll be eating this a lot, especially when the weather gets warmer.

    • Hi Elizabeth! I was pretty skeptical about cold oats before I tried them as well. I haven’t been eating them since it’s freezing out lately, but I’m looking forward to having them again once the weather gets nicer. You’re right – it’s so easy and no extra dishes required at all! Enjoy!!! :)
