My first time trying a "refrigerate overnight" oatmeal recipe. Prepared recipe as directed. Recipe is awesome but I found out rather quickly that I am not a cold uncooked oatmeal fan. Second time: Prepared again with old fashioned (not quick) oatmeal (same as before) and the changes I made were to use a brown sugar blend and unsweetened almond milk. The next morning I poured this into a microwavable bowl stirred in an additional 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk and cook for 3-4 minutes removed and topped with another 1/4 unsweetened almond milk and added Stevia to taste. NOW we are in business!!! I definitely will make this again and again but not as a grab and go breakfast. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly (used quick oats). I didn't care for the underlying oat flour-y texture/taste. As with the previous reviewer I know now I am not a fan of uncooked oatmeal. I heated it up in the microwave and it was marginally better after adding more milk and some extra sugar. I thought the amount of spices was a bit over- powering in particular the ginger. FYI rather than make up all that spice mix and potentially have it sit around for who knows how long here are the ingredients for one serving: 1/4 tsp each of cinnamon ginger and allspice and 1/8 tsp of nutmeg and cloves. Personally I would cut the ginger to 1/8tsp also if I was to make this again. Read More

I am rating this 5 stars for the simplicity of the idea and recipe. I cannot wait to try it in the morning. When I have decided on how the ORIGINAL recipe suits me I will update my review. Until then thank you for sharing this! UPDATE: This was delicious! Not too sweet and just the right amount of seasoning. I did add 2 tsp slivered almonds to it also and the extra crunch was worth it. This was actually about 2 servings too I couldn't eat it all in one sitting. Very good and worth making! Read More

Love this concept but the spices totally took over! Next time I will use the cinnamon and brown sugar only! Read More

This is pretty darn good. I love overnight oats and have them every morning but I wanted a change from my usual recipe. This one is good hot or cold. The spice blend is yummy. The level of sweetness is just right for me and I love the pecans. My mother in law hates nutmeg but she came into the kitchen asking what smelled so good. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I used pumpkin pie spice instead of the spice blend in the recipe and it was much more simple. It still turned out amazing and I was so pleasantly surprised by the simplicity of it and the quick prep time. A great option for breakfast on the go! Great option for a low waste and delicious quick breakfast. Read More

Delicious! I will make this again but I made changes. I used 1/3 cup steel cut oats instead of rolled oats. I used Almond milk. I added 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt and 1/2 tablespoon flaxseed meal. Your Gingerbread Spice recipe made it mouth watering. Read More

It really tastes like gingerbread!! I added vanilla yogurt to it and it was really good. Next time I m gonna cut the gingerbread seasoning by half a little much for me but it was still really good! Read More
