Last night I asked the kids what they wanted for lunch and Iain requested overnight oats with lots of fruit. Easy enough. I used Coach’s Oats, which have a great texture and don’t get as mushy as rolled oats. To the oats I added yogurt, vanilla soy milk, chia seeds, a little maple syrup and lots of fruit: bananas, kiwi, raspberries and blueberries. I made a nice big batch of these oats, so the grownups could have little jars for a mid-morning snack. Yummy. A little serving of oats—hot or cold—is one of my favorite snacks.
