As the weather gets warmer, I do not crave for warm and comforting food for breakfast. But I still love my oats for breakfast as they are filling, keeps me fuller for longer and have all the right carbohydrates to keep me going for 3-4 hours.
So, I have been making overnight oats lately. They are so easy to make and all I have to do is mix all my ingredients and store it in the fridge overnight (or up to a week). And in the morning, top the oats with some fresh fruit and/or nuts and they will be ready to be devoured 🙂 One of my favourite ovenight oats flavour creations is my carrot cake overnight oats. So, I would love to share my recipe with all of you. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have.
