The Easiest Overnight Oats

the easiest overnight oats

It doesn’t get any easier than this for breakfast! Combine the oats and the other delicious ingredients in a jar or plastic container the night before, and you’re ready to go in the morning! You can meal prep a few days worth in advance too.

Soaking the oats overnight results in a creamy, thick porridge consistency.

Oats are a great source of protein, fibre and vitamins crucial to the metabolic process such as B1 and zinc.

If you’re not keen on almond milk, then check out our blog on all the milk alternatives on the market today here, or normal dairy milk works great too! Or, if you’re keen to make your own almond and cashew milks then check out our recipe here.

We’ve topped this recipe with kiwifruit and yoghurt, but it’s great without any topping, or with berries, stone fruit, canned peaches, pineapple, melon – anything really!
