It's been a while since I have added any overnight oat recipes here. But that's not a sign that I am running out of ideas; it means I am starting to bring my 'A' game to the line of overnight oats! And let me tell you, the best is yet to come!
The oatmeal recipes that are headed your way do require a little more prep in the kitchen but I promise they will be well worth it. For instance, these Maple Glazed Pecan Overnight Oats do require you to roast the pecans in the oven for just under ten minutes. Most of the overnight oats recipes I have are fully prepped in that time. For this recipe, I ended up adding more pecans and maple into the mix to have some leftover for later to snack on. So in reality, it can be two recipes in one!
Also, if you want to take these to the next level, add a few dashes of cinnamon to the pecan mix before roasting. So good!
Since I put maple on the pecans, the extra maple in the oats is optional as it may already be sweet enough for you. You can always decide to add a bit more in when you serve them.
And if you are an overnight oat first timer, let me share a few things. First, you can make several servings at a time and then have them ready to go in the morning. You can eat them cold or hot. If you prefer them hot, just pop the jar or bowl in the microwave in the morning for about 60-90 seconds and you are set. Gluten free rolled oats work just as well as regular so feel free to use either. I have also had many people ask if they can use quick oats instead of rolled. You can, you just may need to add a bit more milk if you do.
Other than that, enjoy this new breakfast that almost tastes too good to be true! Add in any of your favorite toppings to make it your own such as raisins, coconut, berries and more. Check out all my other overnight oats recipes under the Breakfast section on my recipe page.
