Overnight Oats for your health...
« on: March 19, 2012, 01:51:04 pm »



Basic Ingredients
 
1/3 cup uncooked rolled oats (not instant, not steel cut)
 
1/3 cup low-fat milk (dairy or non-dairy)
 
1/3 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
 
 
 
Possible Add-ins
 
½ cup fresh fruit – or –
 
½ cup pumpkin – or –
 
½ cup applesauce – or –
 
1 tbsp unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa
 
 
 
Directions: Mix uncooked oats, milk, and yogurt together in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and leave in the refrigerator overnight. The consistency will be soupy after this initial mixing.
 
 
 
Overnight, the oats will absorb the liquid from the milk and yogurt, and the mixture will expand and thicken. This absorption process, in essence, “cooks” the oats. In the morning, top the mixture with nutritious add-ins of your choice. The possibilities are endless for this high-protein, low-calorie, satisfying morning treat!

Thanks for posting this!  I've been looking for a different way to fix  oats in the morning.

Thanks, dejaysk1, I just noticed this thread and have already printed out the recipe.  It's right up my alley and can't wait to try it.  Love the cocoa add on suggestion. Also pumpkin. This is a recipe you can really play with. I'm wondering how almond milk would taste in place of regular milk.  I've developed quite a taste for almond milk.  Now I'm hungry!
