Over Night Oats

Oats are something that I eat almost daily, in fact, I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have them in some shape or form for breakfast. They are cheap, quick to make and keep you full and satisfied for a long time, perfect before a workout or before you go to work. Overnight oats, makes it even quicker (if you can believe it) and convenient to bring your oatmeal with you where ever you go.The best part of all, you can eat it either hot or cold and they can be made in advance, lasting up to a week in the fridge. Give some of these recipes a try!
