"Bakewell Tart" Overnight Oats

bakewell tart overnight oats

Overnight oats are just the dream for those busy mornings when you need a breakfast to grab & go, but don't want to sacrifice taste or nutritional goodness. I had one such morning recently (as increasingly seems to be the case!) but thankfully, I'd been organised in advance and prepared these Bakewell Tart inspired Overnight Oats, which combine the classic flavour pairing of almond and cherry. I made these the night before and in the morning, I simply grabbed the jar from the fridge on my way out of the door. They caused quite the stir when I got to work and tucked into them at my desk, with lots of the team intrigued by the idea and wanting the recipe- so here it is!

Three great health benefits: good source of fibre, promotes healthy skin, anti-inflammatory 

Serves 1

1/3 cup frozen cherries
1 tsp maple syrup
1/4 cup gluten free oats
1/2 cup almond milk (I always use unsweetened)
2 tbsp ground almonds
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp smooth almond butter
Pinch flaked almonds, to sprinkle

1) Place the cherries, along with a splash of water, in a small saucepan over a medium heat on the hob. Simmer for approx 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until a compote is made. Stir in the maple syrup and set aside to cool. Once cool, place in your serving bowl/ jar as the base layer.
2) In a bowl, mix together the oats, almond milk, ground almonds and vanilla extract. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
3) In the morning, stir the oat mixture then place onto the cherry base layer before topping with almond butter and a sprinkle of flaked almonds. The mixture can also be layered up in advance, if required.
