Overnight Oats.

Being an avid lover of hot gooey, luscious oatmeal in the morning I was sceptical of overnight oats. I did avoid them for a little while but with busy mornings I just can’t be bothered to cook anything. I know I would rather sleep an extra 10 minutes than prep, cook and wait for regular oatmeal to cool enough so I can eat it.

So here is my simple overnight oatmeal recipes for you to try out. There is a peanut butter one (because I, for one can’t live without peanut butter). There is also blueberry, and chocolate caramel.

I usually put a little protein powder in mine but that is completely optional. They take just as good without. But it helps me get me through till lunch time.
