Overnight Oats

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

1
In a bowl, combine the oats, apple juice and dried berries.
2
Grate in the apple (no need to peel), using the large holes in a box grater.
3
Mix together well, and spoon into the jars.
4
Cover each layer of oats with a thick layer of yogurt.
5
Drop some berries or sliced stone fruit on top, and drizzle over a bit of honey.
6
Place the lids on each jar and leave overnight in the fridge. You can eat one a day, as the mixture will keep for around four days in the fridge.

There are many ways of making this dish – you can soak the oats in milk, and add the apples later, or leave out the apples altogether, and use any fruit, including sliced nectarines, poached pears, banana or mango. We soak the apple and dried fruits overnight in the apple juice, so they don’t colour, and layer the dairy element above, topping off with whatever fruit is in season, finishing with a drizzle of honey.

This wonderful recipe is from ‘MILK’ by John and Sally McKenna produced in association with the National Dairy Council. ‘MILK’ is available in bookstores across Ireland and can be purchased online here.
