Method

  1. Place oats and almonds in a food processor and pulse a few times to make the oats smaller. This will improve the texture of your overnight oats. 

  2. Pour oats and almonds into a bowl and add all other dry ingredients, mix well. If you will be taking your breakfast to go, pour into a jar or container with a tight fitting lid. 

  3. Pour in the milk and water, cover and place in the fridge overnight.

  4. In the morning, scoop out your serve, add a dollop of yoghurt or a splash of milk to loosen the mixture, add some fruit and breakfast is served


Hints

  • Halve the recipe for a single serve
  • Don’t have a food processor? No problem, use quick oats and flaked almonds instead!
  • This mixture will last up to 4 days in the fridge so double the quantity for some easy meal prep.
