*The best oats for overnight oats are old-fashioned rolled. Do NOT use "instant" or "quick cooking" they will become absolute mush. Do NOT use steel cut, they will be grainy. Use exclusively "old-fashioned rolled oats". Thick or thin, both work. *Nutritional info for 3/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats and 3/4 cup 2% cow's milk.
