Have you heard about the overnight oats’ craze? If you’re just now hearing about overnight oats for the first time, you’re not alone! Overnight oats are a mix of raw oats, soaked overnight in water, milk or yogurt, and then served uncooked with fruits and nuts.

While it may take a while to adjust to the taste if you aren’t an oatmeal person, there’s no denying the health benefits associated with overnight oats. Raw oats help you feel fuller and burn more fat, so this is a great meal replacement if you’re trying to lose or manage your weight. You’ll absorb more nutrients and feel like you’re eating a bigger breakfast with its thicker consistency. And most importantly, you’ll improve heart health with oats being a cholesterol fighter.
