This was an interesting alternative to the usual overnight oats. I added fresh berries and coconut yogurt to the top which I think is an absolute must, otherwise, it's a bit plain - but I guess that's true for most overnight oat recipes? It's good if you prefer a savoury breakfast, but I think I'll stick with the sweeter overnight oat recipes you've shared, I liked those much more.

Thank you for the honest feedback, Miriam! This one is definitely a more savoury recipe, but it's totally okay to prefer a sweeter breakfast! We're glad you've enjoyed our overnight oats recipes 🤗

I love overnight oats and these were definitely new... and flavorless...
