Maple, Vanilla & Pecan Overnight Oats

4th May 2018
overnight oats

Overnight oats seem to be a big thing at the moment. Their biggest plus point is that they are so quick and simple to make and pretty healthy, although you can easily make them not so depending on what you add (i.e.. the nutella version I made a few weeks ago that may or may not appear on the blog at some point!)

Over the last few months I’ve made a few variations depending on what I fancied but my favourite is this one.

These oats are also fantastic for adding a bit of a boost to start your day, just add a sprinkle of Chia seeds, cacao nibs, acai or more! You can find great discounts on protein powders over on Groupon and much much more too!
