How Much Milk You Really Need For Overnight Oats
The basic recipe for overnight oats is easy to put your twist on, but as a general rule, start by using a 1:1 oats-to-milk ratio for the right consistency.
This is enough milk so the oats absorb the liquid and become soft and creamy, but not so much that they become watery or runny.
If you wake up to oats that look either too runny or too dry, you can add additional dry ingredients in a pinch if there's excess liquid, such as chia seeds.
Conversely, if your oats are chunky or dry, simply add more milk and stir until the oats have that desired, smooth consistency.
