Overnight Maple Oatmeal
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling
I thought this recipe was great. I used vanilla Greek yogurt and doubled the amount...yum! I can't wait to make it again!
I added cinnamon and substituted applesauce for the yogurt. Delicious! Thank you, Maddie, for sharing this recipe.
I made this with vanilla Greek Yogurt & toasted pecans - topped it with berries & the family lived it. So quick & easy! ??
I can 't imagine wanting to eat cold wet oatmeal.
You can make it more diabetic friendly by using plain fat-free yogurt instead of the vanilla yogurt, Greek yogurt if you want even more protein, and replacing the maple syrup with sugar-free syrup. That will cut carbs and fat.The Nutritional Facts for the recipe as is - 36 grams of carbs, but you have to add the carbs for any fruit you inlcude. So, it could put you over the recommended amount of carbs for a diabetic meal, which is 45-60.
This was so easy and wonderful. Easy to take to work. Lots of options for variety with changing up the fruits and nuts. Thanks for the recipe
No, jenn, the oatmeal is not cooked. It sits overnight and soaks up the milk and becomes softer, and it's not a hot cereal, it's eaten cold and requires no cooking at all.
Do you cook the oatmeal?
