If you're unfamiliar with overnight oats, it's time to get acquainted. The concept is simple: healthy oatmeal that's left in some kind of liquid overnight will plump up more fluffy and creamy than if you microwaved it. It's easier to make than regular, hot oatmeal, and is a morning time-saver since it's all ready to go when you wake up. Plus, chilled oatmeal is actually a pretty refreshing summer breakfast.
Most of these 13 savory and sweet overnight oats recipes have delicious additions to make them a bit more creative than your average bowl of porridge. They only take five to 10 minutes to throw together, but become wonderful all on their own, overnight, in your fridge.
