If you’ve not yet jumped on the overnight oat train, you may well be persuaded by the health benefits oats can provide! Oats are packed with fiber, the main soluble fiber being beta-glucan. This is the magic ingredient, leaves you feeling fuller for longer thanks to the fact that they slow down digestion, suppress appetite, and increase satiety. This makes overnight oats ideal if you’re trying to lose weight, as you won’t be tempted by that mid-morning snack after eating them! Besides being super-filling, oats are a fantastic source of minerals and antioxidants including Phosphorus, Thiamine, Zinc, Iron, and Magnesium.
