The best thing about these No-bake oats is that you can spruce them up as you like!
While the base ingredients will stay the same the toppings on the other hand are completely customizable, you can add nuts, fresh fruit, jams and so much more.
No-bake overnight oats are nutritionally rich and healthy. They are loaded with fibre, protein and antioxidants that support our overall health especially our gut health! Since the oats are being soaked overnight and cooled down they naturally become higher in resistant starch. Resistant starch is a carb that gives us the feeling of fullness and aiding in digestion and weight loss.
