Fruity overnight oats

 

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
