[…] Overnight (Soaked) Oatmeal […]

This is a great idea! I'll have to try this. Just an FYI, Bob's Red Mill rolled oats are the best for oatmeal and granola bars.:)

Thanks for letting me know your favorite, Alyssa! I can't recall if I've had Bob's Red Mill oats before...

Bananas and peanut butter. Every time. It's amazing! Although I do enjoy it with any fresh fruit, a handful of chopped nuts or seeds and cinnamon if I ever fancy a change. I love this recipe, by the way. My body and digestion always thank me for soaking and preparing food properly. I have finally mastered a great sourdough starter recipe and it's working wonders for me, so I really wanted (given the amount we have porridge for breakfast) a great soaked oatmeal recipe, and I've found it! :) I love so many of your recipes. Your baked oatmeal recipe is the only one I've ever liked (although I change it up slightly to make it lower in sugar), and the no-knead bread was one I made for many years and still occasionally do if I've not had the time to make sourdough! :)

Ooooh...yum! I love bananas + peanut butter.
Aw, thank you for your kind words! So glad you enjoy my recipes. :) I'd really like to get into making sourdough. It's so expensive to buy, and I know it would be easy once I got the hang of it...

So glad you enjoyed it! Yeah, I didn't really enjoy oatmeal until I made it the way I liked it, not the way my dad does. :)

This oatmeal is SO delicious! I was never an oatmeal girl - until this :) I always disliked dry, clumpy oatmeal, but this is more like an oatmeal pudding - so creamy and good. I love mine with sliced bananas, walnuts, honey and cream. Thanks for sharing!
