Overnight Oats for the Busy Vegans

Overnight oats are great!

They are easy to do and there’s so many to make!

It makes mornings easier especially for all the busy vegan out there.

You’ll be glad you tried it at least once.

Then, you’ll ask yourself why you didn’t start sooner!

For all the recipes below, use your alternative yoghurt substitute. All work the same and you’re breakfast will still taste delicious.

I personally like Almond Breeze’s unsweetened original kind. It doesn’t have any added sugar so it doesn’t mess with the taste of my overnight oats.

Let’s get started with my favorite recipes I’ve tried this year!
