Overnight oats are one of those pinterest-worthy breakfast ideas that I have always presumed would take hours to prepare, whereas in truth that couldn't be further from reality; the recipe we've discovered (thanks to the folks over at Slimming World) takes less than five minutes to make, and doesn't require oodles of fruit and resources either! At under 300 calories per jar it's super healthy yet gives you enough energy to last till lunch time without snacking... and storing it in a kilner jar allows easy transportation, just grab a spoon and you're good to go - multitasking never tasted so good!
A cup of fruit of your choice (I used 20 raspberries and 15 blueberries)
40g rolled oats
6 tablespoons of organic fat free yogurt/non-dairy substitute (I used Rachel's Organic Peach and Passion fruit)
Optional extras: honey, banana chips, desiccated coconut, seeds and nuts
One kilner jar with lid
Start by placing roughly a third of your oats into the bottom of the jar, making sure the surface is relatively even, then top with two tablespoons of yogurt or dairy substitute, before adding around ten pieces of your chosen fruit to create a similar sized layer to the previous two. Simply repeat this exact process until all the oats and yogurt are gone then add more fruit on top for good measure (a.k.a. to make it look pretty.) Put the lid on the jar and place it upright in the fridge overnight, and the next morning the oats will have softened and you'll be left with a pretty darn tasty layered breakfast treat!
