New Quaker Overnight Oats - Chilled Oat Cereal

When I heard about the new Quaker Overnight Oats, I was excited to try them. I've never had oatmeal cold, so it was a bit odd for me. At night, you simply add milk, place in the fridge to cold-steep, and leave overnight until the morning. Then breakfast will be ready when you wake up.

Two flavors are available:
1. Toasted Coconut & Almond Crunch
2. Raisin Walnut & Honey Heaven

I wake up in the morning, always feeling a rush to get ready to head out and then remembered my overnight oats. I didn't really like the texture too much. The oats were a bit chewy when it's cold. I would've prefered it warm. Instead, what I did was pour the contents into a microwaveable bowl and warmed it up in the microwave for about 20 seconds. After having it heated, it was a lot better! I tried both flavors on different days and they both tasted good.

If you want it creamier, add a few tablespoons of yogurt. You can also adjust the amount of milk used to achieve your desired consistency.
