Comments on this Recipe

very useful information.

Why the OJ? Is it for flavor?

This was so good. The orange juice lent a hint of orange essence. It was the best "hot cereal" I've ever had. Didn't need any sweetener.

This is amazing! A bit of a change from the usual overnight oats recipe, love the addition of fresh OJ!

Are the oats cooked first or do the 'cook' in the mixture?
