Overnight oats are a quick and easy breakfast made by soaking rolled oats in liquid overnight. Their popularity is still going strong for a few reasons: they're simple to prepare and perfect for make-ahead breakfasts and busy mornings. Also, overnight oats keep the integrity of the oat intact, helping to avoid that gummy texture that cooked versions of oatmeal sometimes take on. The soaking of the oats helps break down the starches making them easier to digest.
