Oats remain my top choice for budget-friendly breakfasts since they’re a penny and are a blank canvas of flavors, and you can consume them cold or hot. Each summer, I switch my oatmeals baked in hot water for cold overnight oats that are soaked in cold water since they’re equally satisfying and refreshing in the heat. A few days ago, I saw the Golden milk overnight oats on the menu in a restaurant, and, as a big lover of milk with golden hues, I knew I had to taste these oats immediately! I spiced my milk by adding cinnamon and some other warm spices and then using the spiced milk to soak my oatmeal overnight. The resulting flavor was wonderfully earthy and fragrant yet calm and refreshing! It was a total success!


The recipe below will make one serving of these oats. I usually make four portions at a time (you can alter the ingredients in the recipe by simply changing the payment within the boxes for serving). They’ll keep in the refrigerator for approximately five days. For everything I’ve mentioned as in a “pinch” of, that is about 1/8 teaspoon after the recipe has been altered to serve four portions.


You can make use of any milk that is dairy-free or non-dairy to make this recipe. Golden Milk Overnight Oats, be aware that if the milk you use has been sweetened in any manner, you might need to reduce the honey used in the recipe. I am a fan of how dairy milk is paired with the earthy taste of turmeric and the delicate sweetness of love (milk + honey is a classic combination of flavors! ).


Feel free to mix other seeds and nuts into the oats, as I made my Make-Ahead Seeded Oats with a bear an eye on the possibility that you might require additional milk if you are using absorbent items, such as Chia seeds.


Eating these overnight Oats cold or hot, and enjoying them plain or sprinkling them with whatever delicious things you’ve got inside your kitchen cupboards is possible. Today, I added dried cranberries as well as unsweetened coconut shredded. Bananas, pistachios, or almonds are excellent choices!


1/3 cup of rolled oats ($0.06)

2/3 cup of milk ($0.21)

1/4 teaspoon turmeric ($0.03)

1/8 tsp cinnamon ($0.02)

One pinch of cloves ($0.01)

1/8 tsp vanilla ($0.04)

1/2 tsp honey ($0.02)

One bit of salt ($0.01)


Add the cinnamon, turmeric cloves, honey, and salt to milk, and whisk until the mixture is well-mixed. The spices might remain clumpy. However, that’s fine. They’ll soften when they’re hydrated overnight.

Place the oats in the jar or another air-tight container. Pour the milk with spices over the oats, and stir briefly to mix.

Cover the container and let it sit for at least 8 hours or up to 5 days.

For serving, Mix the oats in the water and then enjoy straight from your container or put them in an empty bowl. It is possible to garnish with nuts and fruit If you have them.
