I’ve been making overnight oats for so long now (I don’t know how I survived without them) and my absolute FAVOURITE flavour combo is chocolate and raspberry. I don’t know why but this amazing breakfast pot hits all the right spots, regardless of where I am or what I’m doing.
As a general rule, the base recipe is 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup Liquid (yoghurt and milk combined) and some sweetener and chia for thickening. Everything else is subject to personal preference!
Having the ability to prep my breakfasts for the week is literally life changing and it ensures I always have a breakfast to look forward to. It’s an early highlight of my day to be able to tuck into this sat at my desk, post workout or just at home.
Most critically, this has become my staple race day breakfast and it’s never let me down!
