Nicola Hobbs - Apr.16.20

Overnight oats are the perfect make-ahead breakfast. When you're hungry first thing in the morning, you know you've got something delicious waiting for you in the fridge. 

And these protein-packed vanilla and coconut overnight oats are as quick and simple as it gets —  five nourishing ingredients, less than five minutes prep time, and full of over 20g of protein to keep you feeling satisfied all morning.

Overnight oats are great for family breakfasts too — just double, triple or quadruple the recipe and serve with lots of toppings so everyone can help themselves!
