Prepare these jars in the evening, place in the fridge and while you are sleeping, the liquid is soaking the oats so they will be soft, sweet and ready to be eaten at sunrise. They’re perfect for busy mornings or when the weather is getting warmer and you want to enjoy breakfast in the park. I have also made this for brunch gatherings where I prepared a lot of small jars filled with different flavours. It looks fun with handwritten stickers on the jars and everyone can choose their favourite one. Soaking grains and seeds makes them easier to digest, the nutrients are more readily absorbed and it gives the oats a silky consistency. The first time we discovered this method was in the restaurant Peels in New York City.
