I love making up a few of these at a time for a quick, on-and-go breakfast. You can use different spices or maple syrup and your favorite berry or fruit.

Excellent! I loved this tasty breakfast! I'm making it again tonight. This is so versatile, you can easily use different fruits or milks. I made it with non-fat milk last night, but tonight I will use almond milk. The consistency is perfect. I might use a tiny bit less cinnamon (personal preference), but other than that, the ingredients are spot on. Yum! Read More

This a good idea to start with but needs tweaking. I used half the cinnamon and it was still too much. I did not like the taste of uncooked cinnamon. I also replaced the chia seeds with hemp seeds, as uncooked chia seeds sets off my irritable bowel. Next time, I will use vanilla instead of cinnamon. I do love the idea of having a cold oatmeal to eat in the hot summer, and not having to heat up my house cooking it. Update: I used 1/4 tsp. vanilla instead of the cinnamon and it tasted much better.

Wow, this was good. And so easy. And so customizable. I used my homemade almond milk instead of regular milk, and added fresh fruit the next morning plus a splash more almond milk to loosen up the texture just a bit. In my next jar, I added a tablespoon of unsweetened shredded coconut plus blueberries. In the jar after that, I added a few chopped nuts and fresh peach. There's really no end to what you can do with this excellent base recipe. Read More

I love this recipe, though I took it in a different direction. I used a stick blender to blend the entire thing and added more milk to get a smoothie. It is awesome I've made it everyday this week. I make a different variation every morning. My favorite so far is a Tbs of peanut butter and a tsp cocoa powder along with some cayenne for a little zing. This keeps me full and stops the snacking till lunch. yum! Read More

I've been trying different overnight oatmeal recipes lately, and I really enjoyed this one. I make 3 or 4 at a time, so I have them on hand for a healthy breakfast or snack. I used almond milk and vanilla greek yogurt, and cut back a bit on the cinnamon (to about 1/4 tsp) per jar. Having one of these in the morning keeps me satisfied until lunch! Read More

This recipe was a great jumping off point for me because the base ingredients really made for a hearty product. I like a certain consistency so I tweaked it a bit. (More oatmeal less honey and cinnamon and I made it with a smidge more yogurt. I used Noosa!! Delish??) fresh berries really added a great texture. I'm not normally a soft oatmeal fan but I'm diggin this creamy cooking alternative! Read More

I have made this 4-5 times now. I use vanilla instead of cinnamon, as others suggested. This gets the ratio just right, so I also use it as a base for other flavours. (Others have turned out too thick or too funny). DO NOT SKIP the chia seeds! I think they are essential to a successful overnight oats recipe. Read More
