Overnight oats ratio

When it comes to making the best creamy overnight oats, you’ll need to know the best ratio to use. I found the best ratio for overnight oats is 1:2 one part oats to two parts liquid. Each serving of overnight oats contains 40 grams (½ cup) of oats, 125 milliliters of milk (½ cup), and 125 milliliters of yogurt (½ cup). Using this ratio for an overnight oat base, the recipe can be easily scaled up to serve larger servings. This recipe can also be adjusted to personal taste. Add less liquid if you want a thicker consistency, or add more if you want a thinner consistency. Now that you have the perfect overnight oats base, all that’s left is to choose the flavors and toppings you would like to add.

How long do overnight oats stay good in the fridge?

Overnight Oats are a great recipe for those who like to prepare meals for the week in advance. Overnight oats can be stored in the refrigerator for between 3-5 days. The oats are best stored in individual portions in a lidded container. Jam jars are the perfect size container to use for your overnight oats. If you’re planning on making overnight oats to be stored in the refrigerator for a few days, it’s best to not add nuts, seeds, and other fruit like apples that don’t keep well after being chopped, until you’re ready to eat. As some of these overnight oat toppings can go soft or lose their flavor.

Can you freeze overnight oats?

Yes, you can freeze overnight oats, this is a great way to meal prep for future breakfasts and can also reduce food waste. You can freeze overnight oats for 3-4 months. You can freeze them for longer, but the texture and quality of taste will be affected the longer it’s frozen and I’m sure you want the best-tasting oats for your breakfast. The best way to freeze overnight oats is in individual portions so that you have them on hand when you want them. It’s best to freeze your overnight oats as plain as possible; leave any fruit, nuts, seeds, sauces, etc, until you have fully defrosted them and are ready to eat. An important thing to remember when freezing is to always use freezer-safe containers. Another tip to remember is that the oats will expand slightly during the freezing process, so never fill your container to the top. Always leave a little room, as no one wants, overflowing frozen oats sticking to their freezer drawers.

Can you heat overnight oats?

Overnight oats are meant to be eaten chilled and are perfect for the hotter months. But if you aren’t keen on eating cold oats, you can of course heat them up and enjoy them warm too. The best way to heat the overnight oats is to microwave them. First, add the oats to a microwave-safe container and microwave on full power for 30 seconds; remove the oats and stir, place back into the microwave for a further 30 seconds and stir again. Continue to heat and stir until you have your overnight oats at the temperature you like.
You can also heat your overnight oats on the hob, but because the mixture is thick and sticky, it’s best to add a little boiling water to a saucepan before adding the oat mixture. Doing this will help loosen the overnight oats making it easier to stir and stops the oats from sticking to the pan as it’s heating up.
