Berry & Vanilla Overnight Oats

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to discover berry & vanilla overnight oats. Now, I can’t imagine eating anything else for breakfast.

They are SO easy to make, SO insanely delicious and really do fill you up for hours and hours. I’m a terrible morning person, so knowing this bowl of goodness is waiting in the fridge when my alarm goes off actually makes me excited to spring out of bed.

I change up my overnight oats recipe with different toppings. This one is a wonderful combination of aromatic vanilla, sweet berries and crunchy seeds.

Another big favourite of mine is more nut-based, drizzled with almond butter and topped with crunchy nuts – recipe coming soon!

I still sometimes have my big breakfast smoothie at the weekends, but during the week before work this is a serious time saver.

The below ingredients are for 2 portions – 1/2 a portion of oats per person. I always make more so I have 2 days worth of breakfasts before making the next batch!
