I have only just tried overnight oats recently and I must say, I think I’m hooked! I have seen them on various blogs for a long time now and I have always been meaning to try them… The problem? I only ever remembered I wanted to try them in the morning when I was searching for something tasty to eat! So last night I was passing time looking at food blogs, as usual and I saw a overnight oats recipe. I was delighted. So I went and made it up straight away (So I wouldn’t forget it AGAIN!) And I was very impressed  It has a very smooth, creamy texture and even though you are eating oats, which the majority of us would associate with hot food, it was cool and soothing. The perfect fresh start to the day!
