Prepping breakfast is something that many of us can get stuck with, especially if mornings tend to be busy. We often shovel down a bowl of cereal or rush out the door eating cold toast, only to feel hungry an hour later.
Overnight oats is a no-cook method of making porridge. You mix rolled old fashioned oats with milk, and other delicious add-ins, and let it rest in the fridge overnight. In the morning you have a pudding-like porridge that is easy for a grab and go breakfast. As the oats have spent time in the fridge soaking in liquid, it helps to break down some of the compounds that can cause digestive issues.
There are hundreds of overnight oat recipes, but this is one of my favourites. It is high in protein, fibre (that feeds your gut bugs and keeps you regular), antioxidants, healthy fats, minerals and complex carbohydrates.
It will last in the fridge for up to a week, so why not try doubling the recipe!
