Yes, you can make oats without turning on the stove! Combine them with milk the night before and let the fridge work its magic, then add any toppings you please in the morning. Texture is also a matter of personal preference -- if you like a looser oatmeal, simply stir in more milk.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine oats, milk, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in an 8-ounce jar or bowl; cover. Refrigerate overnight. Stir in additional milk to loosen, if desired. Top with pepitas, cranberries, and a drizzle of maple syrup; serve immediately.



Tropical Overnight Oats
Swap out the milk for coconut milk and omit the cinnamon. Top the oats with toasted coconut, sliced kiwifruit, pineapple, and mango, and a drizzle of honey.
