Overnight oats are a healthy way to start your day, and if you are someone who is pushed for time in the morning, they are a great option as you can just grab them from the fridge and they are ready to eat.
Ingredients – oats – chia seeds – coconut milk – greek yoghurt – maple syrup – vanilla extract
The best thing about overnight oats is how easy they are to make. You simply add all the ingredients to a jar give them a good stir and then pop them in the fridge overnight.
For this overnight oats recipe, I use the ratio ½ cup oats + ½ cup milk + 1 tablespoon chia seeds. This works perfectly for the oats and chia to absorb all the liquid and give the right consistency.
I like to make my overnight oats with coconut milk. However, this is totally up to your personal preference and any milk will do.
Oats are rich in a number of nutrients, such as fiber, carbohydrates, plant-based protein and B Vitamins.
