Overnight oats

This recipe is great if you don’t have time to make, sit and eat your breakfast in the morning, you can simply make this the night before and enjoy it in the morning on your way to work, school or wherever you need to go. I used a 350ml jar; you may need to increase the ingredients if you have a bigger jar. You can try different fruits if you don’t like apples, however I tried this with bananas and I didn’t like it at all (I love bananas by the way but it just didn’t work for this recipe for me).
