How long should you wait to eat overnight oats?
If you are using old-fashioned rolled oats to make overnight oats, they will need 6-8 hours to soak up the liquid and turn soft. You can speed it up a tad and use quick oats which might be ready more quickly, in 3-4 hours. Personally, I find it easier to make them at night so they can sit overnight in the fridge.
What fruit is best for overnight oats?
Most fruits work really well in overnight oats except for those that brown easily. I try to stay away from bananas, peaches, nectarines, and apples because they don’t look so great after sitting overnight. I find berries or pureed fruits (with a bit of lemon juice added) are the best options to use.
They need time to sit. The oats slowly absorb the plant-based milk while stored cold in the refrigerator. Depending on how soft you prefer your oats, they will need at least 6-8 hours until ready.
Use old-fashioned oats: While quick oats work fine, less processed oats give the overnight oats more texture.
Save time: Make a double or triple batch to meal prep so you have an easy breakfast during the week.
Store strawberry overnight oats in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Make sure they are in an airtight container. Stir them up well before eating.
