I prefer to make them with plant-based milk, so coconut, almond, rice, soy milk, etc. You can make them with juice or water, too. I suggest you try a few different options and see which one you prefer.
Anywhere from 2-4 days depending on what you add to the oats. Keep it simple and they will last longer.
I use rolled oats or old fashioned oats. Instant oats will end up super mushy since they have already been processed. You can also use steel cut oats, but they will have a chewier texture.
Since oats are low in calories, low in fat and high in fiber they definitely help you stay satisfied and satiated, especially when paired with protein like peanut butter (try adding some to your Simple Overnight Oats -yum!), or slivered almonds.
Oats are known to lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes and colon cancer. They also help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol.
