We love overnight oats because they are high in fibre (which is beneficial for good gut health), and also because they keep you feeling full for a longer period of time. Overnight oats can also be delicious depending on what ‘add-ons’ you include, like in the recipe below.
Soaking oats overnight helps the starches break down and reduces the natural phytic acid, which may help your body utilise the oats’ nutrients much more efficiently.
