Notes

If you don't have yogurt or prefer to make this recipe without it, substitute it with the same quantity of milk.
 
To make this recipe vegan, we recommend using unsweetened plant-based yogurts such as soy or coconut.
 
If you like your oats warm, you can always heat them up on a stovetop, after they have rested in the fridge.
