Are Overnight Oats Plant-Based?

These Gingerbread Overnight Oats are not only gluten-free, but they are 100% plant-based! Sure, you can use animal products in certain varieties of overnight oats, but making this recipe vegan accommodates any plant-based houseguests that you might host during the holidays.

Oat milk is the perfect plant-based milk for soaking oats. It is creamier and richer than cow’s milk and also creates the optimal texture in your oatmeal. Feel free to use your favorite plant milk for this recipe.
