Natural and Thrifty in 365: #187 Overnight Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a good breakfast choice for many families.  But making oatmeal from scratch each morning can take more time than many of us have to spare.

Avoid the sugary, processed packets and make your own nutritious oatmeal while you sleep.  This is not a slow-cooker recipe that turns into inedible paste overnight.  This is a soaked oat recipe that gets warmed in the morning and is served much more quickly than cooking from scratch when you get up.

Try the basic recipe or get nutty.  Which do you think your family would enjoy most?

  1. not sure I’d try this one. The best oatmeal I’ve made uses steel cut oats cooking in the crock pot overnight. It’s warm and ready in the morning and makes the house smell great.
