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).

  1. Preheat the oven at 180°C.
  2. Grease or line a muffin tin with muffin/cupcake liners.

  4. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda) with a spatula.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula. Do not over-mix, we do not want a smooth consistency, just make sure that all the ingredients are incorporated.
  6. Fill the cups with about 2/3 full, leaving a little space at the top because it will rise a bit.
  7. Bake for about 30 min until golden brown and a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
