Make these delicious Smore's Overnight Oats the night before, place in the fridge and then they are all ready to enjoy the next day.
Overnights oats are great for when you have little time to prepare something, they are most popular at breakfast but can really be enjoyed anytime of day, the oats thicken in whatever you soak them in, making them extremely filling. I love them for breakfast or a dessert.
Some of you may be wondering, well what on earth is a S'more? Well up until 2000, I had no clue either, but then at the end of my degree at university, I did a BUNAC summer placement at a Children's Summer Camp in Upstate New York. It was there I was introduced to the famous camp fire treat that is a s'more.
A s'more is basically two graham crackers (which are square shaped biscuits, the easiest way I can describe the taste to someone from the UK, is like a cross between a rich tea and a digestive biscuit). You then stick a marshmallow on a skewer and toast it at the camp fire, once toasted you add a square or two of chocolate (usually hersheys) to one square of graham cracker, add your toasted marshmallow to the top of that and then sandwich together with another graham cracker square and squish down so that the heat of the toasted marshmallow melts the chocolate - divine!!
My kids love S'mores - so I just had to create a S'mores Overnight Oats and this didn't disappoint, it was really yummy.
The s'mores overnight oats were sweetened with Sukrin:1, (a natural sweetener with no aftertaste), you can use any sweetener if you prefer. I then use mini marshmallows, chocolate chips and unsweetened cocoa powder. For the crumbled biscuit, I use a fancy pants brown sugar cookie. I bought these from Costco in the USA and they are soooo good. For those of you who can't get these, try to find a biscuit/cookie that is similar, you want it around the 30 calorie mark.
I seem to be on a theme with overnight oats inspired by my travels that year, first I gave you these delicious Peanut Butter and Jelly Oats, now these S'mores overnight oats, whatever will be next?
