I have NEVER liked oatmeal cooked in milk - OK, I have been lactose intolerant since I was a baby. So I make my overnight oats with water for the liquid. It works for me. Try it and see if you like it.

Do you have a particular want/need to eat oatmeal in the morning?

I'm asking because there are a lot of other make-ahead breakfasts that might fit your dietary requirements better if you just don't want milk, dairy or otherwise, in the morning.

If you really want oats, but just not the milk, maybe try making an overnight-oats recipe with just water, and adding a little nut butter for flavor, fat, and protein in the morning?

Nut milks are basically just the nut blended with water, and then sometimes strained. Commercial nut milks have a lot of other stabilizers and things in them (I have nothing against commercial nut milks - I consume about half a gallon of unsweetened commercial almond milk per week). If that's what's throwing you off, and you have a good blender, you could try making your own nutmilk, and see if you tolerate it better.

The easiest one to make is cashew milk, as it doesn't need to be strained afterwards, and the protein/fat ratios are similar to dairy milk, so with its mild flavor, it's a pretty good sub.

1/2 c. raw cashews (soak in water overnight, then drain and rinse)
2 c. water

Blend 1-2 minutes until completely smooth. Refrigerate and use within 3 days. Makes about 2 cups of cashew milk.

I can across a recipe that uses water, no milk of any kind. I tried it, and I was actually surprise it wasn't bad at all. And I didn't use any honey or sugar, but I did use a little fresh fruit.

Overnight Oats.

I make this with unsweetened almond milk, however you could use water. It won't be as creamy. I prefer to eat it cold.

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
pinch of ground cinnamon (to taste)
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp honey (I omit when using dried fruit)
sliced almonds
dried cranberries (lower sugar), blueberries or raspberries

Mix all ingredients in a 16 oz mason jar and shake. Refrigerate for 8 hours or up to 5 days.

I just happened to see a blurb in People magazine that one of the celebs makes it with almond milk.

I googled for a recipe and this one used almond or soy

Anyone have a good recipe for overnight oats that doesn't use dairy or other types of milk? I can't tolerate milk of any kind in the morning.
