I am really getting into this whole breakfast malarky! Especially because overnight oats are so easy!
All you need is to get a load of ingredients together, put them in your container and leave them to soak. That’s it! And if you’re not sure what to put in your overnight oats, there are a few rules I like to follow:
- Dried fruit and nuts. Simple, easy and always works
- Sweet spices; think cinnamon and nutmeg. Just chuck in a teaspoon, give it a stir and leave the amazing flavours to permeate
- If it makes a decent cake, it makes amazing oats
Keeping Rule #3 in mind (you may remember Carrot Cake Oats previously), I thought I would use a recipe which would use up all of the lemons I seem to have accumulated. You know what they say, “When life gives you lemons, do something with the lemons” (I’m not brilliant at proverbs, but I gather that’s the gist).
