"Until about a year ago I ate porridge everyday which though healthy and delicious can be time consuming. I discovered overnight oats on a blog and they have revolutionised my mornings! They require no cooking and are immediately ready to eat in the morning.
Overnight oats are prepared in the evening and left in the fridge to soak overnight. In the morning toppings are added to the softened oats. The amount of oats you use is up to you. I have a trusty 1/3 cup measure that I use every day. These will keep for up to 3 days so you could make a bigger batch.
I favour jumbo oats as I like the bite they give and find they keep me fuller for longer. I also add linseeds (for ahealthy digestive system) and pumpkins seeds (a great source of protein – which helps keeps you full through to lunch).
The fun part is adding the toppings. One of my favourite combinations is sultanas, grated apple, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds but feel free to get experimental with any combination of fruit, seeds, dried fruits or even nut butters!" Nichola, Three Sisters Bake
