Notes

  • Soak them in milk and curd (optional) overnight and add your flavours in the morning
  • Check the consistency before refrigerating. (It should be thick)
  • Though the recipe eliminates the need for any sugar but those who want to make the recipe sweeter, use honey (skip sugar)
  • I can’t digest a lot of milk and hence prefer to mix curd. Also, I added peanut butter and banana intentionally, just to up the protein levels

Here’s a little about overnight oats:

Similar to oatmeal, overnight oats are fluffier and are served cold. These are prepared by soaking raw oats in liquid- milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc. – overnight in the fridge. One can try different iterations to find the best fit.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Skipping it means you are inviting those extra kilos.
