19 Overnight Oats Recipes To Restore Your Faith In Breakfast

Breakfast of convenience! It does all the work while you sleep, people.

Here's a basic formula, from Food52, to follow when making your own overnight oats:

1. First, mix rolled oats with an equal amount of your liquid of choice. You can use any combination of dairy or non-dairy milk, yogurt, or even juice; just stick with the same basic 1:1 ratio. If you're using steel cut oats instead, use more liquid and be prepared to do some chewing.

2. Mix any spices, sweeteners, or dried fruit you like into the oats and milk.

3. Store in a glass jar or another airtight container and let the oats soak for at least three hours, ideally overnight. A nifty breakfast hack to try: Mix the oats in a nearly-empty peanut (or almond) butter jar.

4. In the morning, you can add fresh fruit, nuts, and other favorite toppings to your oatmeal.
