Salted Caramel Mocha Overnight Oats Tips:

Salted caramel, coffee and chocolate are the perfect combination for overnight oatmeal. Enjoy your delectably soaked oats with help from these tips to make the meal prep even more tasty and delicious.

  • Use rolled oats instead of steel cut oats or quick oats when making this overnight oatmeal recipe. Rolled oat provides a nice balance of soft and crunchy texture when soaked overnight. Steel cut oats tend to be overly chewy when only soaked for one night and quick oats get very mushy when soaked. 
  • Although oats are gluten free, it’s recommended to purchase certified gluten free if you follow a strict wheat free diet.
  • If the mixture seems too thick, then add more liquid too thin it out when serving. The overnight oatmeal water ratio of 2:1 liquid to oats is a good guideline to follow. 
  • Make a large batch and store each serving in separate mason jars for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
  • Add a scoop of Greek yogurt to make it extra creamy and also increase the amount of protein.
  • Sweeten the no cook oats to your personal preference by adjusting the amount of caramel sauce.
  • Protein powder or chia seeds are a great addition for a post workout energy boost.
