I love overnight oats. I love how simple they are, I love how it means I wake up to a ready-made breakfast, and I just love how truly tasty they are.
Especially now that it’s spring, my breakfasts and snacks start getting colder and the porridge starts getting shelved in favoured of the overnight oats. Of course, London is yet to receive the Spring Equinox memo, but my dreams of warm sunny days are closer and closer to being a reality.
If you’ve ever had bircher muesli, then overnight oats won’t be such a leap. It basically involves soaking the oats in a liquid so that you don’t have to hover over the stove while they cook. It’s brilliant, really. In this recipe we’re adding some protein powder to give it that much desired protein boost. Oh, and we’re also throwing in some chocolate for good measure because all mornings should start with chocolate.
