Here is a great way to make a batch of no-cook oats in your fridge. Just put all the ingredients in a mason jar, shake, and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, give it another shake and serve cold or room temp. You can also heat it for a minute in the microwave for a thicker texture. Seriously easy and delicious! Use your imagination to add different flavors to the oat base. Here is one version I love..
Makes 2 servings
- 1/2 cup steel cut oats
- 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (coconut, almond, hemp, hazlenut, etc.)
- Pinch of cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1 TB organic raisins
- 1/4 tsp orange zest
Add all ingredients to a mason jar, shake, and store overnight in the fridge. In the morning, shake and serve (cold or room temperature). If you prefer your oats hot and thick, microwave for 1 minute then serve.
The variations are limitless! Here are some ideas to get you started: lemon zest, blueberries, sliced almonds, hemp or chia seeds, cacao nibs, pomegranate seeds, unsweetened shredded coconut, bananas, nut butter, grated carrot/cardamom/currants, crushed pecans or walnuts, pumpkin puree/dash of coconut palm sugar, or Greek yogurt topping.
