Lately Bryan has been asking me to create recipes that are easy for him to heat and eat for breakfast in the morning.

 I’ve also had a little bit of that desire, as my time cooking and recipe developing shrunken because of other projects that I’m working on.

Overnight oats was an easy solution and super easy to make with a few Pantry ingredients. Here’s how to do it.

What are overnight oats?

Overnight oats is the process of soaking oats for a few hours to make them soft, yet chewy. This method for “cooking” oats is awesome, because it requires no heat, and no actual cooking.

Moisture absorbed into the oats, and after a while, the oats become softer without any heat, and only refrigeration.

Ingredients for my Peach Pie Overnight Oats 

  • 4 ounces of frozen peach slices
  • ⅔ cup rolled oats
  • ⅔ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener of choice (honey for my batch)

How to make overnight oats diabetes friendly 

 There are few ways to make overnight oats diabetes-friendly:

  •  Make it with a low carb liquid
  •  Use a sugar substitute to lower the amount of carbohydrates
  •  Use unsweetened rolled oats
  •  Watch the portion size
  •  Add a protein powder or prebiotic powder

This  is already a dish with lots of fiber, so it helps you feel fuller, longer.

What kind of oats should you use for overnight oats?

Rolled oats and steel cut oats are both fine for this recipe. I typically use rolled oats myself but both will achieve the texture you’re looking for with the soaking process.

How long do overnight oats last?

Overnight oats last about 1 week in the refrigerator, after that they’re a little too mushy. I typically make two batches (4 total servings) at a time, knowing that that gets us through a week with the two of us.

What type of liquid  should I use for overnight oats?

There are lots of options for making overnight oats. You can use whole or 2% milk, but it has a lot of sugar.

You can also use almond or coconut milk, but those are a little higher in fat. Water is also fine, there’s nothing wrong with that: no calories, no carbs and no additional macros to worry about. 

You may want to add a touch of milk or heavy cream to your final overnight oats just to get a little bit of creaminess since water will soften the oats, but it won’t necessarily give you the creaminess you might be looking for.

What size mason jar do I use for overnight oats?

The size of your mason jar doesn’t actually matter that much. If you want to go for portion control, use the smallest jar possible, however it doesn’t really matter.

For reference, we use 8 oz canning jars. It leaves enough room at the top so I’m not worrying about overflow. But I don’t really care that the mixture doesn’t come all the way up to the top.

Can you heat overnight oats? 

Yes! Add ¼ cup of water to your oats and heat in the microwave for 1 minutes (add 30 seconds at a time if it’s still not hot enough). Stir it and enjoy. 

I do mostly enjoy them cold. They’re good, and refreshing!

  • To heat, add 1/4 cup of water and microwave for 1 minute. If it’s still not heated through, keep heating in 30 second increments, and stir between each time you heat. 
  • You can enjoy this cold – it’s just as delicious. 
  • You can use the milk of your choice in these recipes – I enjoy cow’s milk, almond milk, oatmilk, or even water for the moisture.
