Gingerbread Overnight Oats

gingerbread overnight oats

Regular readers will know that, out of all festive foods and flavours, gingerbread is my absolute favourite.

In fact, if I had it my way, I’d have gingerbread EVERYTHING all year round. I love it that much!

Not only does it pack a powerful punch when it comes to flavour, but adding spices such as cinnamon and ginger to foods is a great way of upping nutrients and health benefits, too!

Anyway, this simple, cosy bowl of Gingerbread Overnight Oats is perfect for those breakfasts on-the-go – you know the ones, where you’re dashing frantically around and have no time to yourself!

Simply make these the night before, and you’re good to go. I promise!

Although I didn’t have them to hand for this shot, they taste particularly delicious topped with caramelised apples (yum). But feel free to use whatever you have to hand!
