Notes

A "scant" cup means a little less than a cup. This measurement will result in a standard overnight oats texture.
Nutritional values are based on one classic vegan overnight oat jar.
Variations
Use other dried fruit as desired, like dried cherries, blueberries, or apples. You can also swap out the cinnamon for other spices.
Pumpkin Spice: Whisk in 1-2 tablespoons pumpkin purée to any recipe and use 1-2 tablespoons less milk. Include a couple dashes pumpkin pie spice.
Chocolate Hazelnut: Stir in a tablespoon of hazelnut butter to the Chocolate recipe and top with chopped hazelnuts.
Apple Cinnamon: Use chopped dried apples instead of raisins in the Cinnamon Raisin recipe.
