You can rise and shine with this delicious breakfast idea! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and when it’s a quick breakfast that I can grab on the go then it’s even better. Not only do these overnight oats taste fabulous but a serving of this is a nutritious and satisfying way to start the day too.
This is also one of those recipes that you can customise to include your favourite flavours. Use it as a base for different add ins and toppings. Here are a few ideas to level up your overnight oats:
- fresh or frozen berries
- go tropical with mashed banana, kiwi slices and fresh pineapple
- stewed apple
- add spices like cinnamon or ginger
- almond flakes or chopped pecans for crunch
- toasted coconut flakes
- cocoa and/or cacao nibs, even chocolate chips (hello chocolate oats!)
- pumpkin seeds or chia seeds
- peanut or almond butter
