Breakfast Salvation with OatsuOvernight Oats – Breakfast’s healthier living renaissance is truly afoot, a ‘slow-release-energy’ foodie movement that first began when stuck-at-home commuters started seeking out compelling ways to jazz up their first meal of the morning whilst staying true to their new, healthier living convictions.
Oatsu is a new plant-based, handmade overnight oats breakfast taking the ready-to-eat breakfast fixture by storm as a portable, all-natural snack, helping you get the most of your mornings with their plant-based, gut-friendly breakfasts.
As a substantial ‘slow-release’ energy snack, I have been eating these pots with great pleasure throughout the day and not just for breakfast. Made with raw rolled oats that are jam-packed with resistant starch (beta-glucan), the food the good bacteria in your gut feeds upon, they have been a tasty, healthy addition to my daily diet and the good news is that is high in fibre and contain 10 out of the 30 plants needed per week for a healthy gut.
Overnight oats are a no-cook, chilled version of porridge. instead of being cooked, the oats soak in plant milk and soften to a thick, creamy consistency making the perfect slow-release breakfast or snack and keeping you full due to their high fibre content.
Launched early 2022 in an array of enticing flavour formats: Choc Peanut, Blueberry & Apple Cinnamon and most recently Banana Biscoff; Oatsu is already making positive waves within the Capital with online supermarket Jiffy recently announcing that Oatsu provides their fleet-footed operation with its 1st and 3rd most popular breakfast options.

At its simplest, overnight oats represent the very antithesis of traditional sugar-laden cereals, set-in-their ways porridges or curious liquid alternatives, a substantial ‘slow-release’ energy snack made with raw rolled oats that are jam-packed with resistant starch (beta-glucan), the food the good bacteria in your gut feeds upon.
Oatsu is the healthier outlook vision of former HSBC social media manager Lauren O’Donnell who constantly found herself frustrated by the lack of substantial plant-based breakfasts available within the supermarkets encircling her office. ‘Despite being a long-time advocate of preparing overnight oats, one doesn’t always have the time or inclination to spend every evening in the kitchen prepping for the next day. Having taken my fledgling idea to an Enterprise Nation gathering in late 2019, I was taken back by the overwhelming positivity towards my vision and samples. I knew then that Oatsu had an exciting future providing the perfect ‘at desk breakfast.’ Three years on Oatsu has made the transition from post-it thought to bonafide business and I’m so proud that many of my in-attendance, Enterprise Nation peers have gone on to become vocal Oatsu devotees.’
