WHAT ARE OVERNIGHT OATS?
They’re basically a no-cook method of making oatmeal. So, instead of cooking oatmeal on the stovetop or in the instant pot, you soak the raw oats with milk. That soaking process allows the oats to absorb the liquid and soften them enough to eat uncooked. You only need to let the oats soak and rest in the fridge overnight. Hence the name overnight oats!
The next morning you have a ready-to-eat, delicious, creamy bowl of “oatmeal.” The consistency is like a porridge. It makes for an easy convenient breakfast. Best of all, you reap all the healthy benefits of oats in a fun grab-and-go breakfast.
They contain more protein than most grains (5g per serving).
They’re a rich source of fiber, which helps you feel fuller longer (4g per serving).
They’re high in antioxidants which may help lower blood pressure levels.
They can help you lose weight by making you feel more full and slowing down the emptying of your stomach.
