These Blackberry Mojito Oats are more than just your basic overnight oats recipe and is my favorite warm weather oatmeal. I like to makes overnight oats in a jar for 3 days at a time, so I just grab from the fridge and go during the week. Easy overnight oats are a great way to start your day. This recipe is without (vegan) yogurt, so it’s a little thinner than you may be used to. You can add more oats or less liquid to make them thicker if you prefer.
If you don’t imbibe you can leave out the rum, or use a rum flavoring instead. Regular vanilla extract is made with an alcohol base so you’re not really adding any extra alcohol if you decide to add the rum.
