Plain Overnight Oats

Simple-to-make overnight oats take the cooking out of mealtime. This mix-and-go recipe is best prepared the night before, or up to three days in advance. The cold version is refreshing, but if you prefer a hot bowl of oats, heat the prepared oatmeal in the microwave before serving. These oats can be flavored to suit your tastes. Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and peaches all go well with oats.
