Learn how to make overnight oats with kefir milk. All you need are oats, kefir milk and a bit of maple syrup or honey for oatmeal with the best texture.
- 2/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats*
- 1 cup plain kefir milk (I used whole milk but any fat percentage will work)*
- 1 Tbsp. maple syrup or honey
Optional add ins:*
- 1/3 cup fruit or berries (optional)
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 1 splash vanilla
- 1 Tbsp. chia, flax or hemp seeds
- Add the oats, kefir, and maple or honey to a glass jar with a lid.
- If you’re using any add ins, add them at this time.
- Screw the lid onto to the jar (I like to use plastic, non-reactive lids with fermented foods), and shake until everything is combined.
- Place the jar in the fridge overnight, or for at least 6 hours, and serve! You can make these as soon as 3-4 days before you want to enjoy them, so prep a few at a time!
- Quick-cooking oats will work, but I prefer old fashioned rolled oats. I have not tested this with steel cut.
- Gluten-free oats are great – oats are naturally gluten free, but sometimes they are processed in facilities that work with gluten-containing food and can be contaminated.
- If you have flavored kefir, it is most likely sweetened. If so, taste the mixture before adding any excess sweetener. It may be sweet enough as is and you can omit the maple/honey. If you avoid processed sugar, opt for plain kefir.
- Any of the add ins are optional. The recipe will work and be delicous with just the oats, kefir and maple/honey. The add ins just take it to the next level.
