7 Overnight Oats Recipes Making Mornings Run Smoothly
28th March 2017
What are overnight oats?
Overnight oats are simply oats soaked overnight in your choice of liquid and toppings so that they absorb into the oats. Overnight oats are super easy to prepare, and mean you can wake to a delicious, creamy, satisfying, ready-to-eat breakfast for at home, work or on-the-go. All you need is some rolled porridge oats, a re-sealable container or jar, and whichever toppings and flavours take your fancy. Here’s a few of our favourites…
