written by Yummy Team 29th July 2019

Eat like a king in the morning, they said, you will have a great day, they said. We don’t always have the luxury of having a kingly breakfast, sometimes, all you think about is how you ended up realizing your son had worn his sweater inside out (thank goodness you stopped the bus in time to fix that real quick!). Our mornings can be a bit hectic but that should not stop you from enjoying your breakfast. We present to you the easiest (and the best) overnight oats recipe.

Oats are bland little products of nature. Are you sure you can enjoy them without adding a little sweetener? This overnight oats recipe is healthy, minus the sweetener so if you feel like you can do without the sweetener, feel free to remove it from the ingredients.
