If you haven’t heard of Overnight Oats yet, seriously where have you been?
One of my first ever blog posts was about Overnight Oats, but I thought it was time for a little update because let’s face it, this fantastic breakfast deserves more attention. (You can read the previous post here if you’re interested)
I was first introduced to them a couple of years ago and I haven’t looked back since. They’re my go-to when it comes to quick, easy, and convenient breakfasts.
If you’re anything like me you’ll know that even if you give yourself an hour and half to get ready in the morning, you’ll probably still be rushing out the house with a toothbrush in your hair, five minutes later than planned.
But that’s the great thing about Overnight Oats, you can prepare them the night before and just pop them into your bag in the morning. I often take them to work which is perfect, as there’s no extra preparation needed.
I thought i’d share a couple of my favourite recipes, and hopefully if you haven’t already, you can give them a go!
The premise of Overnight Oats is pretty much the same each time, you just need to mix the oats with your liquid, and then add any extras. For this particular recipe, pour out the oats into a big mixing bowl and add the Muller light yoghurt. You can then either dice the apple, or grate it. I like to grate mine, because it properly soaks into the rest of the mixture, leaving it nice and gooey. Once mixed, pour everything in a jar and pop it into the fridge over night.
Yes, it really is THAT simple! In the morning you’ll find your oats have expanded, and the mixture has thickened. I absolutely love these Muller Light yoghurts, so this recipe is perfect for me and I love how sweet it is, but if you’re still in need of a little more sugar, a drizzle of honey never hurt anyone.
Ok now I know I said the last recipe was a sweet one, but this takes it up a level. This is the type of breakfast you want if you basically fancy desert in the morning, and I mean honestly who doesn’t?! Pour out your oats and add in the yoghurt. Mix it up and add in some sliced strawberries. Leave in the fridge overnight and there you have it, your 9am pudding!
This recipe was inspired by a breakfast I had out in Cambridge recently, at a gorgeous little place called Sticky Beaks. This works well with either frozen berries, or fresh but I find it easier with frozen as you have a nice mix and don’t have to buy lots separately. The method is exactly the same as the previous, just pour everything into a bowl, mix, and leave overnight.
So simple, but so bloody good.
Have you tried any other recipes? I’m always on the look out for new ones to try so please let me know!
