Sophie Gray from Destitute Gourmet chats with Luke about the benefits of eating oats.
Easy Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are a great alternative to porridge, and provide a wider variety of nutrient opportunities. You can use plain oats and your preferred combo of nuts, seeds and dried fruits or use a readymade untoasted muesli as a base.
For each serving you will need: A bowl, glass, jamjar or tumbler – if taking to work jars are handy
½ cup of raw, untoasted muesli – or your fave combo of oats, dried fruits and nuts
Approx ½ a cup offFresh squeezed orange juice
2-3 tbsp unsweetened greek yoghurt Topping – not essential but even more delicious
A handful of berries– I use defrosted frozen mixed berries durig the week, and at the weekend sliced fresh seasonal fruit
A few slivered almonds to top – optional
The night before place the muesli into a bowl, jar or glass. Add enough fresh orange juice to just cover the muesli and then refrigerate overnight.
In the morning top with a generous dollop of thick Greek yoghurt and some fruit. In the unlikely event that you need a little extra sweetness you can add a swizzle of honey.
