not-vegan overnight oats


nvoo?

i have to tell you, i was really, really skeptical about this. i have a big, HOT bowl of oatmeal with peanut butter, honey, cinnamon, almond milk, and dried cranberries pretty much every morning, so i felt like i should jump on the food-blogger bandwagon and try overnight oats/cold oats/vegan overnight oats (voo). except mine aren’t vegan. they’ve got honey.

basically what you do is pour your milk of choice (almond milk all the way for me!) over oats (and cinnamon if you know what’s good for you), cover, and put it in the fridge overnight. in the morning top it with whatever you like and it’s supposed to be delicious. well, it is tasty, but the texture is freaking me out. i also have a weird thing where cold food never feels as filling. i think i used way too much almond milk and not enough salt…i’m going to try again tonight/tomorrow with less milk. hopefully that will give me a thicker, creamier and less runny texture. i have not given up on you, cold oats. (oh, and that’s a cup of earl gray with almond milk, which i haven’t had in forever. mmm.)
