What are overnight oats?
Overnight oats are a no-cook method of making porridge and involve soaking rolled oats in a liquid mixture overnight. The soaking process allows the oats to absorb the liquid and softens them so they can be eaten uncooked. If you are short on time, you can soak and rest the overnight oat mixture for 2 hours before eating; however, soaking overnight is recommended for optimum results. The next morning you will have a delicious, healthy breakfast with a similar consistency to porridge. This makes for an easy and refreshing alternative to warm porridge during the summer months.
