What are overnight oats?
If you haven’t had overnight oats before, they are essentially a cold version of oatmeal. Instead of cooking rolled oats, you soak rolled oats in liquid overnight (or at least for a few hours). This softens the oats to a beautifully creamy texture.
Are overnight oats healthy?
Yes! Overnight oats are full of health benefits. They are rich fibre, protein content, and they contain a number of vitamins and minerals.
Are overnight oats high in protein?
Rolled oats, the base ingredient of overnight oats, are a rich source of protein in themselves. They contain 11.1g of protein per 100g. To make overnight oats even higher in protein, other ingredients such as greek yogurt, nut butter and protein powder can be added (as shown in the recipes below).
