Benefits of overnight oats
1. Easy to make ahead, so they save you time in the morning.
2. Full of protein and super foods to keep you feeling full longer.
3. They are versatile. You can add your favorite ingredients and try new recipes, so they don’t get old. Try different flavor combinations and add different toppings to spice up your oats.
4. Since the oats soak overnight, their starches break down. This helps improve digestibility and they are more easily absorbed by your body.
5. Overnight oats taste like a delicious, pudding dessert, so it’s hard to believe they are actually healthy.
