Darling Eats: Easy Overnight Oats

Hi everybody!

So I’m sure a lot of you, like myself, are trying to start this new year off right and eat healthier. Eating healthy is something I struggle with, not because I don’t like healthy food, I just find it takes longer to prepare and sometimes after a long day it’s just easier and more convenient to stick on a pizza.

Finding overnight oats was literally a godsend for me! I’m not a very big breakfast person and I bought oats to make porridge but I honestly don’t like it and find it very bland. 🙁 On a whim I decided to make overnight oats a few weeks ago to see if I’d like oats that way and I love it!! It honestly tastes like a dessert!

It literally takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and it’s ready to consume in the morning! My type of fast food! 😀DSC_0309

What you need:

Oats (I used instant porridge oats I already had at home, but any will do)

Granola/Cereal (To add a bit of crunch I put in some cereal I had)

Milk of your preference (I use soya milk but almond/coconut or regular milk can be used)

Fruit! I always put in a banana and some frozen berries

Jar with lid. I got mine in Tesco for €3 but if you don’t have one use a deep bowl and place clingfilm over it

Step 2: Milk

Fill the milk up to the point where the oats are submersed.
