If calories are important to you, substitute 1¼ cups unsweetened almond milk for the almonds and water. I like using raw almonds because you get more of the nutritional value, however there are more calories and fat.
If you're subbing store-bought almond milk for the almonds and water, be sure to add the chia seeds too. The chia seeds are important for absorbing the liquids and creating a thicker oatmeal.
If you prefer a thicker overnight oats, increase the chia seeds. If you prefer thinner, reduce the chia seeds.
If you don't want to use Stevia, feel free to sub in a tablespoon of agave or maple syrup.
