I had heard some not good things about overnight oats from various sources and after doing additional research, I think I understand why. A lot of the overnight oats recipes have yogurt and do not require heating. I don't know about you, but I like my oatmeal warmed up. Cold oatmeal is not my idea of tasty. Personal preference, I'm sure. Anyway, one of the wonderful things about the recipes that Kim has shared is that she also provides instructions on warming them up. I have tried the peanut butter version and the no bake cookie version and a variation on the triple berry because I only had blueberries. I made the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie version for my husband. I wrote the recipes down as I was watching her meal prep video so please forgive me if I left out any specifics. For the sweetener, I used a packet of Stevia. The downside is that it left a bit of an aftertaste. This is trial and error for me because I prefer not to use artificial sweeteners. Give these a try and I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
