Overnight Oats


for 1 portion:

  • 5 Tablespoons (50g) Rolled Oats
  • 5 Tablespoons Skimmed Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup or Honey (Adjust Amount To Taste)
  • 1 Small Apple – Grated
  • Handful of Fresh Fruit Eg. Berries, Banana, Mango, Kiwi,
  • 1 Small Carrot – Very Finely Grated (Optional).


  1. Place Oats in a small glass and mix in the milk and the syrup.
  2. Stir well.
  3. Cover and place in fridge overnight.
  4. In morning simply add the grated apple and a little extra milk to loosen. Add the carrot at this point if using. Stir to mix a little and then top with the other fruit.
  5. This takes minimal preparation in the morning. Prepare the fruit the night before. Apple and carrot are best grated just before serving.
  6. This also makes a delicious dessert. You can make larger amounts of the oats and milk as it will keep in the fridge in a covered container for about 4 days.
