These chocolate overnight oats are a heart-healthy way to start your day and best enjoyed with a cold glass of sweet wine as a refreshing drink.
There are two main types of oats: Rolled and Steel-Cut. Both types begin as whole oats (groats), from which the outer layer (the hull) is stripped, leaving the fiber-rich bran, the endosperm, and the germ, which is home to vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, and healthy oils. From there, the oats are either rolled or steel-cut.
Rolled oats cook faster than steel-cut oats and absorb more liquid. That is the reason why in this recipe, adding one-fourth cup of milk is necessary to adjust the consistency of the oats.
