Overnight oats are a popular pick when it comes to spring / summer breakfast ideas.

They are perfect for busy mornings because they can be made the night before and easily taken on the go.

Better still, it’s hard to get bored of overnight oats because the flavour combinations are pretty much endless!

Here I am sharing 3 different overnight oat ideas, hope you enjoy!
