I came across overnight oats the first time I joined Slimming World (yes I have joined several times). Apparently soaking oats makes them more digestible. Personally I find this recipe a great way to have a healthy breakfast that is ready to go in the morning.
There are many variations of overnight oats with different flavourings but this is my go to. Its such an easy recipe with only four ingredients. I use:
- 40g of rolled oats
- 1 apple
- a handful of frozen raspberries
- 1 pot of vanilla flavoured Muller Light yogurt
If you are following Slimming World then using 40g of Oats is your healthy extra B and now a Muller Light will be 1 syn.
Prepare the night before
Mix the oats in with the yogurt ensuring the oats are all covered.
Next peel and grate the apple.
Mix the apple in with the oats and yogurt.
After mixing put into a bowl or glass, I have recently treated myself to a Kilner Breakfast Jar. Then top with frozen raspberries. Cover and place in the fridge.
Having something that can be prepared the night before that is tasty, filling and diet food is just what we all need every now and then.
The raspberries defrost overnight in the fridge so they are soft and easily mixed into the oats in the morning.
Measure your oats and be generous with your fruit.
Mix it up
There are many variations, you could swap the apple for pear. Another one is carrot cake where you mix the oats and yogurt with grated carrot and cinnamon.
- 40 g Rolled oats
- 1 Apple
- 1 Muller Light Yogurt
- 1 handful Frozen Raspberries
- Mix the oats and yogurt together making sure the oats are well covered
