WHAT ARE OVERNIGHT OATS?
They’re just a fancy way of saying overnight oatmeal, or meal prepped oatmeal. They provide so much convenience because you can prep them the night before or even several days in advance. And the best part? No cooking necessary!
All you do is mix it up in a sealable container and store it in the refrigerator for at least a few hours. It softens up enough during that time that you don’t need to heat it. However, you totally can if cold oats aren’t your jam.
