    What kind of oats? Rolled? Quick Rolled? Steel Cut?

    • Avatar Ari says:

      I use quick oats. I’ve never tried steel cut or rolled. I’d think those would need more time to get softer since the oats aren’t cooked beforehand.

      • Avatar mjtaos says:

        Actually you can make this dairy free with real apple cider (not juice). Just add apple cider in a 2-3 ratio to thick oats (not quick or instant) and chia seeds and let it sit over night. Add whatever fruit and nuts the next morning. Yum. Served this almost every day at our B & B and continually gave out the recipe.

      • Avatar Jo says:

        Only problem with quick oats they are more processed.

    • Avatar Vee says:

      Rolled oats work great. Add some blueberries or a little applesauce too. Yum!

  2. Avatar Cate S says:

    Are these oats cooked first? This is very vague.

    • Avatar Ari says:

      Nope, not cooked. The oats absorb the milk and get chewy while in the fridge. I ldon’t mix it up until right before I eat it.

    Really Good! Favourite breakfast now

  4. Avatar Holli says:

    Sounds good, but 57g CARBS? No thanks!

  5. Avatar darbi says:

    Wonder if you could make 5 of these to have for the work week ahead or would they get too soggy?

    • Avatar Saegiru says:

      I think they’d be too soggy – but if you make them, freeze them, and set them in the fridge the morning before to thaw, I think it’d probably work.

  6. Avatar Chris says:

    Wondering if you could substitute blueberries for banana?

  7. Avatar Echo6Sierra says:

    I do not care for almond milk. Is regular 1% milk a good substitute?

    • Avatar Sandra Momalu LM says:

      I don’t like to drink almond milk as is but I have found it to be great in recipes! Good way to get more protein…JMHO!

  8. Avatar Sue says:

    Could this be warmed a little the next morning?

  9. Avatar Vickie says:

    The carbs & calories too high. Sounds delicious though.

  10. Avatar Charlyne says:

    Sounds yummy, Carbs are too high

  11. Avatar john says:

    Very high in fat forming starches (stored sugars) from chia and oat grains plus banana. Bad fat forming carbohydrates are not prejohnsently separated from good carbohydrates and can be compared to bad cholesterol that is separated from good cholesterol.

  12. Avatar Cate E says:

    I am interested how a meal said to be designed for people with food allergies can have two nut products in the recipe

  13. Avatar Jill says:

    Sounds delicious, but 369 calories? 13g of fat???? Are you kidding me???

  14. Avatar Lourdes says:

    I made this last night and both my husband and I loved it! No problems with the almond milk. By itself unsweetened almond milk tastes like liquid wood to me, but in this recipe it was great. Despite all the comments about the carbs, I think this is still way healthier than prepackaged breakfast foods from the store.

  15. Avatar Bettylovesyou says:

    You don’t have to eat the whole serving. I made it and it was delicious. It’s great for a pre-workout meal. I will be making this again.

  16. Avatar Sue says:

    Cut the oats to 1/4 cup and include some protein powder. Cuts the carbs and overall calories and increases the protein. Also Fairlife skim milk has more protein and less fat than almond milk (hence less calories). Bingo!
