Overnight oats are simply oats soaked in liquid overnight. You can use any liquid you like, but the most common is equal parts rolled oats to milk. (For example, ½ cup oats, ½ cup milk). You can also add 1/3 cup yogurt for a creamier texture!
The base is oats and liquid. Toppings can include anything from flaxseed, chia seeds, fresh or dried fruit, or nuts. There is NO COOKING involved.
