Maple Brown Sugar Refrigerator Oats Dry Ingredients

I promised another refrigerator oats recipe, and here it is.

I’m thinking this flavor combination — maple syrup + brown sugar — is my favorite. Don’t get me wrong. I love the other flavors. I just love this one a tad bit more.

I love the sweetness. I love the texture. And I seriously love the addition of chia seeds into the mix.

If you have been thinking about trying your hand at refrigerator oats, the time is officially now.

I would say more about these oats, but frankly, I have nothing left to say.

  1. Does it have to be rolled oats? Will steel cut oats work too? Do you eat it cold out of the fridge or heat it up first?

    1. A few people have mentioned trying steel cut oats and thought it was super chewy. I have only used rolled oats (it’s what we have on hand).

      And I eat it straight out of the fridge. If you want it to be room temperature, I would say to take it out a few minutes (15-20) before you eat it. No cooking, no heating, just plain enjoying!

  2. I would like to know if all ur recipes are a healthy way to diet and if i did ur recipies would i be getting everything i needed to diet

    1. Stacey—Not sure I can answer that question. I think it depends on where you’re starting from and what your health goals are. It also depends on whether or not you’re sensitive to anything. What are your health goals and what are you looking to accomplish with your diet?

  3. Just so you know, these recipes are NOT corn free unless you make the almond milk yourself. All non dairy milks in cartons, etc… Almond, soy, hemp, rice, cashew are not corn free.

  4. Also, jams/jellies are not corn free either, they contain pectin (corn) & also the sugar may contain corn. peanut butter is not corn free unless it states that it is just peanuts.
    Having to follow a corn free diet is by far the hardest to avoid. Its in everything!

    1. Thank you for the more detailed information! I have taken down the Corn Free archive page because I clearly don’t know enough about the hidden places where corn can show itself and don’t want to pass along any misinformation. Thank you for speaking up and for your input. xo
