Overnight Oats – Cheeky Nutty Monkey

The fibre (oats) and protein (nut butter & yoghurt) in this overnight oats recipe causes a slower release of sugar into the bloodstream, lowering the potential for a blood sugar spike, giving sustained energy. It’s essential to manage this to help you minimize insulin resistance and the risk of many diseases, including diabetes.
