Overnight oats have been a food trend for a while. I like recipes that are flexible like this one is as you can add different things depending on what you have available, although I have to say, I’m not often organised enough to make my breakfast the night before!
Festive Overnight Oats (2 servings, unless you’re REALLY hungry)
1 cup porridge oats
1 cup of milk and yoghurt, roughly half of each (you can use fruit juice instead of milk)
1 apple, peeled and then coarsly grated (you could use finely grated carrot, or a mix of carrot and apple)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
A handful of mixed dried berries (mine contained raisins, golden sultanas and cranberries)
A drizzle of honey or maple syrup
Mix all the ingredients apart from the honey/syrup together to combine them well. Leave in the fridge overnight. Drizzle with honey/syrup before serving.
