Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist

People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

To avoid raw oats, make sure the oats are completely submerged in the liquid before covering and refrigerating.
