The change in weather lessens the appeal of smoothies and has me hankering after bowls of oats, in whatever form. Not one to wake a minute before absolutely necessary, overnight oats, or Bircher muesli, are the perfect solution. These will keep in the fridge for a few days, so do yourself a favour and make a batch.
1 mug rolled oats (GF)
2tbsp mixed pumpkin and sunflower seeds
2 apples, grated
1.5 mugs water or plant based milk
1 mug blackberries
Pinch grated nutmeg
2tsp raw honey
3tbsp coconut yoghurt
Garnish: coconut yoghurt, blackberries, toasted coconut flakes, pumpkin & sunflower seeds, pomegranate seeds, cacao nibs
- The night before: place the oats, seeds, grated apple and water/milk into a bowl, stir and cover. Soak overnight.
- The morning of: add the blackberries, spices, honey and yoghurt to the soaked oats and stir well to combine.
- Serve with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and plenty of sprinkles.
NB: this can be eaten cold, at room temperature, or gently warmed through.
