how to prepare easy overnight oats?

Oats can be prepared raw or cooked. Either way, they’re super tasty and make the perfect breakfast. In my house, we have them both ways. This recipe for overnight oats is nourishing and delicious and best of all you can take it on the go.

It is excellent because you prepare it at night, and in the morning, you have a breakfast full of “superfoods.” I serve this healthy breakfast in individual portions and finish it with fruit, apple, strawberries, banana, mango, anything. All the toppings depend on the season we are at; if it is berry season, I go with berries. If it is winter, I go with diced apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

But this fruit combination of diced bananas, strawberries, and blueberries is one that I love the most with my oats. And if I feel it lacks flavor or the berries are not sweet enough, I add a little maple syrup to sweeten it or sprinkle some ground cinnamon.

The main idea of ​​this recipe is to have a super healthy breakfast ready to serve or to go. This mix of oats and seeds is one meal that you can take on your way out every morning.

What type of oats is the best for this recipe?

Generally, in the supermarket, you will find two types of oats: instant oats and rolled oats.
The difference between one and the other is that the instant oats are cut into small pieces so that it cooks faster; rolled oats take longer to cook.

The texture of cooked instant oats and rolled oats is different; the instant oatmeal is more like porridge, it is soft. The rolled oats are more full-bodied and firmer in texture. It also takes longer to cook.

Rolled oats are best for this overnight oats recipe.

Rolled oats have more fiber and are perfect to use in other recipes such as:
