Tropical Overnight Oats – Hiking Style


Tropical Overnight Oates Recipe

While porridge is typically considered a breakfast meal it can however be eaten at anytime of the day but I would suggest not just before you go to bed as it is likely to be a bit heavy.  As much as I love the Peanut Butter Overnight Oats on long trips I need some variation. This tropical version has almost as many calories but a very different flavour to the peanut butter version. Preparation is really simple with the meal being ready to eat within about two hours of adding the water so if this is going to be breakfast meal add the water just before you go to bed.

While you can use desiccated coconut in this recipe coconut flakes provides a better textural experience
