Overnight oats are your ticket to achieving that fever dream of waking up to a ready-made breakfast. In this version from Kanchan Koya's Spice Spice Baby, chia seeds add calcium and protein, and cardamom adds a hint of unexpected flavor. If you're not big on coconut milk, use milk from any cow, goat, nut or soybean as you see fit. And make sure to use rolled oats instead of instant oats; the latter won't hold up to overnight soaking.
