Overnight oats are a no-cook method of making oatmeal by soaking oats in liquid (usually milk) overnight in the refrigerator. The soaking process allows the oats to absorb the liquid, softening them in a similar way to cooking, but without the need for heat. This method not only simplifies the preparation of oatmeal but also saves time in the morning, making it a popular breakfast choice for those with busy schedules.

The below recipe, which comes from Viva!’s Vegan Recipe Club‘s cookbook Everyone Can Cook Vegan, uses plant-based milk (you can pick your favorite) alongside ingredients like nut butter, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. If you have a sweet tooth, it’s a perfect breakfast, snack, or any meal you fancy.
