Coconut and lime overnight oats
A minute to stir, then an overnight stay in the fridge takes care of the rest. In the morning, you’ll be greeted by a creamy, filling tropical-flavoured breakfast. The recipe scales up easily, and trust us—you’ll want to make extra. Don’t skip that pinch of salt in sweet recipes! It brings depth to the dish, while punching up the brightness of other ingredients too. Chocolate, oats and coconut, in particular, taste richer with a little sprinkle of salt.
