Overnight oats

If, like me, you are not much of a morning person and often end up rushing to work without having a proper breakfast, overnight oats is probably the best thing that could happen to you! I do manage to have a smoothie or a quick piece of toast or some fruit for breakfast but as soon as I reach work, I am starving again. Porridge is a great breakfast and keeps you fuller for longer but to be honest I have never really liked it and have found it quite boring. But overnight oats have really surprised me! They are quite simple to make - soak the oats in some liquid, overnight, and you have a ready to eat breakfast the next morning. Usually the mixture comprises of oats, milk and yoghurt but you could experiment with it as you like. 
For best results use rolled oats and leave them to soak for about 10-12 hours so they soften up well. 


1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1/2 cup plain yoghurt (or lactose free coconut yoghurt for the vegan version)
Handful of blueberries and/or blackberries
2 tsp maple syrup
1 tbsp almond butter (optional)


Stir the oats, milk, yoghurt, half the berries and 1 tsp of maple syrup together and place overnight in the refrigerator.

In the morning, add some healthy fats like almond butter, top up with the rest of the berries, drizzle over maple syrup and dive in!
