Quaker Overnight Oats

Tuesday, September 05, 2017

I never liked oatmeal - ever.  It was only after giving birth that I tried it and realized, it was not so bad.  I think it was because a yummy tablea was put together with the oatmeal. I then, would always always put chocolate something on my oatmeal.  What can I say, I'm a creature of habit!

I have been very curious on the overnight oats.  I have been seeing on my feed that friends have been doing it left and right.  Fact is - I always cook my oats, I always buy those *Quick Cook* ones instead of the instant.  It was my sister in law Sasa who told me to get the quick cook ones, instead of the instant - and she's very particular with food and so I believed her.  Hehehe.  

When I received a Quaker Whole Grain Rolled Oats kit, I was so happy to see that it was a *quick cook* varian.  Yey!  Seeing the plastic canisters - well, I had no reason not to try the overnight oats anymore.  Delaying is O-V-E-R!

I was so happy to receive the kit as it had instructions on the glass canister!  It was easy peasy!  Woohooo!!

No need to guess how much oat and liquid to put!  I'm glad there's a line I can follow.  The kids saw me do this and they want to do it themselves next time.

Here's me trying my best!  Haha..

I found Chia Seeds, so I put them in too..

Now, it's ready to be stored overnight in the ref....  Excited for the result!

I was so excited to see and taste the overnight oats.  This is fresh from the ref:

The verdict?  Well, I won't ever go back to cooking my oatmeal again!  I have decided that these overnight oats taste so much better and the texture is perfect for me too!  Glad to have been part of this activity!  I'll try and scout some fresh fruits to go with this.

I never knew it was this easy.

Want to try this at home ?
