How to make vegan overnight oats. Overnight oats are a great, quick way to ensure that you have a delicious healthy breakfast waiting for you in the morning. If you make them in a jam-jar or Kilner Jar, you can make them, screw the lid on and take them to work for an on-the-go breakfast! I love to just make them on a Sunday Night, leisurely, knowing that when I wake up, inevitably grumpy and lazy on a Monday morning, that at least I’ll have something to eat that might make me feel a little better!
In the morning, your oats will have absorbed all the liquid and be creamy and delicious!
Plain old oatmeal can be boring so try layering it up! Peanut Butter, bananas, lovely, sweet raspberries or strawberries. Or how about jam? Granola or your favourite cereal will add a delicious crunch!
What kind of oats can I use for Overnight Oats?
You can use whatever oats you want, quick oats, easy-cook, rolled, Scottish wholegrain, steel cut, gluten-free. Remember though, that the chunkier and coarser the oats, the more liquid you may need to add, and they will be a chewier, less creamy oat.
