I have NEVER liked oatmeal cooked in milk - OK, I have been lactose intolerant since I was a baby. So I make my overnight oats with water for the liquid. It works for me. Try it and see if you like it.

Do you have a particular want/need to eat oatmeal in the morning?
I'm asking because there are a lot of other make-ahead breakfasts that might fit your dietary requirements better if you just don't want milk, dairy or otherwise, in the morning.
If you really want oats, but just not the milk, maybe try making an overnight-oats recipe with just water, and adding a little nut butter for flavor, fat, and protein in the morning?
Nut milks are basically just the nut blended with water, and then sometimes strained. Commercial nut milks have a lot of other stabilizers and things in them (I have nothing against commercial nut milks - I consume about half a gallon of unsweetened commercial almond milk per week). If that's what's throwing you off, and you have a good blender, you could try making your own nutmilk, and see if you tolerate it better.
The easiest one to make is cashew milk, as it doesn't need to be strained afterwards, and the protein/fat ratios are similar to dairy milk, so with its mild flavor, it's a pretty good sub.
1/2 c. raw cashews (soak in water overnight, then drain and rinse) 2 c. water
Blend 1-2 minutes until completely smooth. Refrigerate and use within 3 days. Makes about 2 cups of cashew milk.
