Summertime Overnight Oatmeal

Not a fan of traditional cooked oatmeal, I was thrilled to learn that I like chilled overnight oatmeal – it’s completely a TEXTURE thing!  Eaten in this fashion, it’s a refreshing breakfast or snack and I often make it without letting it rest overnight, but rather an hour or so in fridge.  Delicious! 

As seen on Chef Alli’s Farm Fresh Kitchen as part of MomsEveryday on WIBW with Amanda Lanum, July 2014, sponsored by the Kansas Farm Food Connection.

Serves 1

Base ingredients
1/4 cup rolled oats
2 Tbs. ground flax seed
2 Tbs. Plain or flavored Greek yogurt (I make chocolate yogurt to use with the Chunky Monkey flavor option below)
2/3 cup milk, I use 2%
Agave nectar, honey or your favorite sweetener, to taste

Flavor Options: 

Chunky Monkey
1/2 banana, sliced
1 Tbs. sliced almonds

Berry Almond
1/2 cup assorted berries
1 Tbs. sliced berries

Blueberry Walnut
1/2 cup blueberries
1 Tbs. chopped walnuts
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

In a tall (20 oz) glass, add the oats, flax seed, yogurt, and milk; stir to combine.

Add the flavor option ingredients of your choice and stir once again.

Adjust sweetness, if needed, and place in the fridge overnight. Will keep for up to 2 days in the fridge.

Now You’re Cookin’,
