I could eat overnight oats every day I reckon! In fact, I’m pretty sure there was a phase where I was! Why? Because they are just so.damn.easy! And delicious. And healthy. And did I mention easy?
I am a bit of an oat addict. In fact, usually when I’m working, I will have some form of oats for breakfast every day during the week! I’ll add them to anything – smoothies, breakfast parfaits, porridge, whatever I can really! Why do I love them? Because they keep me fuller for longer! And that’s exactly what I needed when I was working and didn’t get my first break until 11.15am! If I was eating breakfast at 6.30am, I really needed something to carry me through the morning.
Did you know that oats:
- are high in fibre making you full for longer
- aid in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease
- stabilize blood sugar levels
- lower risk of Type 2 diabetes
And I could go on and on and on, but basically they are the best food ever! I think they may even be classified as a super food now! And we love our super foods!
This recipe is a typical overnight oats recipe that I’ve tried and tested for years. What’s even better, is that (as their name states), are made the night before meaning you DON”T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT BREAKFAST THE NEXT MORNING!! Sorry for the capitals – I get a little excited. But seriously – they are so easy! All you do is whack all the ingredients together, and then add yoghurt and honey in the morning! If I was really busy at work, I used to make them in a container and eat them at work! Then I could make a quick getaway in the morning to get to work early. So if you love a sleep in, or are really bad at making time to eat breakfast at home and always have it on the go, them overnight oats are for you! There are so many things that you can add to this recipe, but this recipe contains our favourite combinations! Also, as the note suggests, I would probably make two separate servings to make sure the liquid to oat ratio is correct.
Let us know how you go making them! And if you do, tag us on Instagram @thehomecookskitchen we’d love to see your work!
