I ran out of groceries at my house again. I say I ran out of food, but that’s not really the case. I ran out of pizza casserole and sweet potatoes. Which meant I was left with protein powder, quick oats and some condiments in the fridge.
I’ve tried making overnight oats before, but it’s tricky finding the right liquid to oats balance so that the oats expand without getting too liquidy. I think the trick is using a thicker liquid, like canned coconut milk.
