Ooooooots.

Or, you know, overnight oats! Also known as the most amazing thing ever right now! I can’t stop shouting!

I know I’m a bit late to this party, but hey, better late than never, eh? Especially when it comes to ooooots, apparently. Because oh my wow, our household is impressed!

I obviously knew about ooooots, but I’d never made them before. For some reason I just didn’t see the appeal. However, a few days ago I thought I’d give them a go.

Wait, no, actually I thought I’d give chia pudding a go, because I’ve got a massive pack of chia seeds that needs using up and I’d always fancied trying them in pudding form. I made it and it was nice enough but it was a bit like what I imagine eating frog spawn would feel like. So that’s when I ventured into the oooot area.

I’ve made them every night for nearly a week now and I can’t believe how many varieties there are! I mean, the opportunities are pretty much literally endless. So far I’ve made them in peanut butter, white chocolate, pumpkin aaand… I feel like there’s been another flavour, but I can’t remember it. And tonight I made a patch of tropical fruit one.

So easy to make, nutritious (most of the time anyway as I use honey to sweeten it and otherwise unsweetened components [except for the white chocolate chips… but you have to be able to have fun with it, otherwise what’s the point?]), delicious (not had a bad outcome yet!) and so convenient to grab in the morning (even my SO has been converted to have breakfast before work now).

I also need to give credit where it’s due and here’s the website I used for my ooooot recipes/ideas https://wholefully.com/8-classic-overnight-oats-recipes-you-should-try/

I’ll go continue searching Pinterest for more oooot ideas now!

Also, the cover picture has absolutely nothing to do with this post, but my ooots haven’t turned out too photogenic yet, and I didn’t want to put a picture of… well, a blob of soggy oats on this post. Because even though I know that they taste a million times better than they look, I wouldn’t feel like I’d be doing them a justice.

Till next time,

G.
