Mum’s Amazing Overnight Oats

My mum introduced me to her amazing overnight oats a couple of years ago.  She was having some refurbishment work done at home and was staying at ours for a while.  Perfect time to pick her brains on cooking.  I mean, there’s nothing quite like mum or gran’s cooking is there? Overnight oats have been popular for some time now.  But, when I tried to make some before mum’s intervention the outcome was rather underwhelming. What Are Overnight Oats? Overnight oats is a delicious and nutritious breakfast option.  They are really easy to make.  Prepare them at night and they’ll be ready for you to grab them and go the next morning.  They are fully customizable to your taste preferences so there are endless possible combinations. Why Are Overnight Oats Beneficial For Your Health? Oats are an excellent source of fibre, protein and other essential nutrients.  Eating oats regularly has been linked to a range of health benefits.  From reducing the risk of heart disease, regulating blood sugar levels and aiding digestion.

In the morning, mix well. I also top my individual portion with some berries (I love blueberries and strawberries) and some chopped walnuts.
