Here's a super easy way to make overnight oatmeal. This kind is to be eaten cold, and all it takes is a stir and refrigeration. This recipe is great for people like me who don't like milk. The milk really seeps into the oats overnight, so you can't taste it much. -Recipe is taken from a vegetarian cookbook written for college students

I also add a dollop of yogurt and some nuts to make this a complete breakfast

Thanks so much for posting this!!! I used to have the cookbook this was in - The Student's Vegetarian Cookbook by Carole Raymond - until a friend "borrowed" it. This recipe is super easy to make and pretty darn tasty. I brought it with me on a camping trip in the cooler, and my buddies couldn't get enough of it in the morning! I usually make it with apples, but you can easily substitute with other seasonal fruits. YUM!
