Overnight oats takes just a few minutes to prep, then refrigerate overnight (hence the name) and it’s ready to go the next day. You can make a large batch and enjoy over a few days as well. Besides my usual smoothies, overnight oats are my next favorite breakfast.

It’s full of balanced nutrients like protein, fiber, complex carbs and vitamins, without much calories or sugars. On top of that it tastes like dessert without any added sugars. Sweetened almond milk and fresh fruits like banana provides plenty of sweetness.

What is ideal ratio of oats to water for overnight oats?

Overnight oats are simple and completely customizable once you know the basics. You want roughly a 1:1 ratio of oats to liquid. So if you have 1 cup of oats, add 1 cup of almond milk for example. You can add any mix-ins and it won’t change the ratio much.

For this recipe I used slightly less oats since I like a bit of liquid leftover. Experiment and find your favorite ratio and flavors.
