What are overnight oats?
When I first entered the food blogging world, overnight oats were all the rage!
They are a take on a Swiss classic called Bircher Muesli, which is a combination of oats, fruit, and yogurt.

How to make cookie dough overnight oats
Yes! Aside from it's deliciousness, the whole point of overnight oats is that you prepare it the night before and wake up to a ready-made breakfast.
Milk is best in this recipe, though you could use an equal amount of water and blend it with the almond butter as the first step. This process will create a fast almond milk! I personally like to use my Homemade Walnut Milk or Homemade Coconut Milk. My husband and kids enjoy regular full-fat milk.
Yes! Choose one that you like. Almond and cashew work best for delivering the cookie dough flavor.
