Overnight Oats


I have never been much of a fan of oats and I do not understand my siblings’ and friends’ love of oats. The oats my father prepares is always very sweet despite me asking him not to add any sugar/condensed milk at all to them. It is not that I like my oats plain and tasteless but I just dont like cooked oats in general (hence, even if my father does not add any sugar to the cooked oats, I would not have liked it too though it would be much healthier). However, when I had the opportunity to be exposed to an overnight oats making event organised by my enthusiastic neighbours, I wanted to join and mingle with them. It was at this event that I realised that I like oats! This is because of the following reasons:

  • Easy and quick to prepare. This is perfect for my hurried weekday mornings.
  • Simple, easy-to-obtain ingredients, depending on one’s own preference.
  • Healthy and tasty!
