I'm always looking for something different and quick for my breakfasts. When I found this over on Pinterest, I knew that I had to give it a try!

My version of Overnight Oatmeal


1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick or instant!)
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup milk

You dump those ingredients in a container, stir it up and cover. Refrigerate overnight. Add toppings of your choosing. I added dried fruit bits and bananas to this batch. Smiley

That looks great! How is the texture? I usually can only eat steel cut oats because I have this weird texture thing Cheesy Hoping it's still a bit chewy!

It is raw!

The mouth texture is similar to that of tapioca (which I love) but a bit chewier. You could always soak it less for it to be chewier.

I'm not sure how the steel cut oats would work since they are firmer. I'd try it since the amounts used in a serving are relatively small. I'm thinking that steel cut would take a longer soak. Cheesy

Yeah I don't know that steel cuts could ever soak long enough to work like that! I might try with rolled oats!

I tried the PB and bananas. I love the bananas but the tartness of yogurt does not mix well with the PB. Oh well....worth a try.

great use for the 25 kg bag of rolled oats my neighbor just bought home to share with me.......thats a lot of pudding....

I also found another one that uses chai seeds, rolled oats, banana or protein powder. then add fruit/sugar in the morning it was very nice. I think I prefer to use yogurt though.

Thanks

I saw this on a different site. they added chia seeds to it they are supposed to be better than flax seeds. here is a link if you are interested. it might have even more of a tapioca feel to it.

rolled oats are not raw either. they are steamed and lightly toasted.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolled_oats

HOWEVER, here's a brief discussion on rolled oats by raw foodist "ghuru" Kevin Gianni. Discussion begins at 4:12. He does admit that it is nutritious and doesn't see anything wrong with it. High in phosphorous, iron, contain vitamin E and protein. He explains why they aren't considered raw and why they are cooked for preservation purposes.

Yum! I've been doing this for a few months now. I love having breakfast ready for me when I wake up. If I don't have yogurt, I'll mash half a banana to give it the thickness. I'll have to find some chia seeds eventually!

I used to do this with Muesli, but I would add orange juice and/or apple juice to the yogurt to make it a bit thinner and tastier. Also, when I did it sometimes I would just let it sit for an hour and that was good.

looks wonderful--I have a friend who makes it with jsut water for soaking and soaks the dried fruit and nuts in with it. 

seeing more recipe options makes me thing it really is time to try this.

I've read that you can also do this same technique with steel cut oats. I'm going to give that a try this summer. Smiley

Overnight oats! Always in my fridge Smiley I'll either use quick oats or regular oats soaked and mixed with whatever the night before or partially-cooked steel-cut oats soaked in extra liquid.

So easy, relatively inexpensive, as tasty as you make it.

Yum! I had found a website re: Overnight Oats during the winter, but forgot about it.

When I was working, I would layer fruit, yogurt and granola in a mug or jar to take on
the road with us. (we had a custom aquarium installation and maintenance company)

I love making it more like muesli with fruit and nuts and love the link

I usually have a Luna Bar in the morning, but love some variety!
