Overnight oats, 3 ways

Overnight oats are brilliant as they are such a timesaver on busy mornings. They are also really versatile, as you can vary almost every element and they still work. The three recipes below are all different ways of prepping overnight oats, as I like to keep things interesting. They can all be made vegan by subbing out dairy for non-dairy, just make sure you include some protein like nut butter, seeds or even quinoa flakes to keep blood sugar balanced.

Buy big oats - the bigger they are, the slower they release the energy. Conversely, finely ground oats tend to spike blood sugar levels. Whole oats are high in soluble fibre, meaning they low down your digestion as well as fill you up!
