Coconut and Apple Overnight Oats


I can think of few things better than breakfast that quietly and merrily makes itself – and this is pretty much that. Basically, you eyeball oats, creamy coconut milk, sweet apple, a handful of nuts and seeds into a jar, then add the gentlest hint of cinnamon and pop them in the fridge overnight. You wake up to the most delicious, plumped-oats goodness and it’s the loveliest way to start a day. Give this a try soon!



Cooks in:        Serves:2

  • 2/3 cup whole rolled oats (certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 cup coconut milk (or half coconut milk and half water, or nut milk)
  • 1 level tsp cinnamon
  • 1 grated apple
  • 3 Tbsp mixed seeds
  • 3 Tbsp mixed nuts
  • Small handful of coconut flakes, to serve
  • Extra chopped fresh apple, to serve
  • Fresh berries, to serve (optional but pretty and delicious)

What to do

1. Layer all of the ingredients into two glass jars, or a bowl with a lid, and refrigerate overnight.

2. Scoop everything greedily straight out of the jar the next day, or add to a bowl and garnish prettily with the extra toppings. Loosen with a little extra milk of your choice and sweeten with a small drizzle of honey or maple syrup if you like.
