Discover the delicious oat sensation when you soak your favorite Quaker® Oats overnight! Milk, yogurt and berries are among the most popular combinations but do not let that stop you from creating endless overnight masterpieces of your own. Simply make it the night before and grab it to go in the morning! There is no wrong way to prepare your overnight oats but if you are searching for a little inspiration, here are some ideas from Quaker Oats.

For best results, let oats soak in the fridge for a full 8 hours so they can absorb all the liquid and use a one-to-one ratio of oats and your choice of milk, yogurt or any other dairy substitutes. For a more crunchy, textured breakfast, set some of the toppings aside to add in the morning and achieve maximum texture with Old Fashioned Rolled Oats or with Instant or Steel Cut Oats. Frozen fruit toppings work especially well as they release delicious juices when they ‘thaw’.
