Mummified Overnight Oats

We’ve taken our overnight oats up a level this Halloween with this spooktacular combination of our Oat Pantry Cherry Bakewell Porridge (made as overnight oats), layered with sour cherry jam, topped with our Oat Pantry Peanut Butter Granola and frozen banana, peanut butter mummies.

Ingredients:

Serves: 1

Method:

  1. Peel half a banana, cut half the banana down the middle length ways.
  2. Place the two cut pieces of banana onto baking paper.
  3. Drizzle peanut butter or any nut butter of your choosing in lines across the banana to look like bandages.
  4. For the eyes use white chocolate drops (we used dairy free ones) and for the pupils a little drop of chocolate nut butter. Press the white chocolate drops into the peanut butter so they stick.
  5. Place into the freezer for 30-60mins, or leave overnight and take out along with your prepped overnight oats.
  6. Now you can prep your overnight oats – into a jar add 40g Oat Pantry Cherry Bakewell Porridge Oats to 100ml unsweetened almond milk, then close the lid and leave to soak overnight.
  7. In the morning layer your overnight oats with the sour cherry jam, you can either layer in between or add the jam on top.
  8. Then press your banana mummies into the overnight oats and sprinkle around them with our Oat Pantry Peanut Butter Granola.
  9. Enjoy!

Banana Bread Overnight Oats

Just like banana bread straight from the oven, but with barely any effort, these Banana Bread Overnight Oats are breakfast you can wake up to–literally!

If you’ve never had overnight oats, they’re basically a no-cook method of making porridge. So, instead of cooking porridge on the hob or in the microwave, you soak the raw oats with any type of milk or yoghurt. That soaking process allows the oats to absorb the liquid and soften them enough to eat uncooked. You only need to let the oats soak and rest in the fridge for 2 hours. But, it’s ideal if you soak it overnight…hence the name overnight oats!

Ingredients:

• 45g Oat Pantry Maple & Pecan Pie Porridge Oats
• pinch of salt
• 1/2 banana – mashed
• 100ml milk of your choice
• 2 broken walnuts
• pinch of cinnamon

Method:

1. In a jar mix together all the ingredients, give them a stir and place the lid on.
2. Place in the fridge overnight, then top with fresh sliced banana, walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup in the morning.

Recipe: Toffee Apple Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats are the perfect make-ahead breakfast.

Due to their high fibre content,  oats are incredibly filling. One serving of our oats will keep you satisfied and free from sugar cravings until lunchtime.

These Toffee Apple Overnight Oats will have you eating dessert for breakfast while getting a nutritious serving of whole grains.

Ingredients:

For the oats

For the toffee apple compote

  • 1 tablespoon butter or vegan butter substitute
  • 1 large apple peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons date syrup
  • 1 tablespoon water

Method:

For the oats

  1. Combine oats and almond milk in a jar, put the lid on and leave to soak in the fridge overnight. In the morning give your overnight oats a good stir, to ensure all ingredients are mixed well.

For the apple compote

  1. Add butter, apples, cinnamon, date syrup and water to a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until apples are very tender. 
  2. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  3. To serve, in the morning top your oats with the toffee apple compote.

Variations on this recipe:

  • We like to eat our Toffee Apple Overnight Oats cold, but you could also heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds (please ensure you use a microwave safe dish for this). Alternatively, you can prepare the toffee apple compote in the morning and serve it as a hot topping for your overnight oats.
  • Feel free to swap almond milk for your favourite vegan nut milk. Cashew, hazelnut and coconut milk all work really well.

Recipe: Banana Jam

Step aside strawberries and raspberries, there’s a new jam in town and it makes a seriously tasty topping to our overnights oats.

We prepared a jar of overnight oats using our Oat Pantry Maple & Pecan Porridge. See our other blog post here on how to make overnight oats. Then topped it with our homemade banana jam, added a sprinkling of cashew nuts, sliced banana, a cube of dark chocolate broken in half and a drizzle of Seadfoods Chocolate Sesame Butter.

If you’d like to give our banana jam recipe a go, follow the below instructions.

Ingredients

• 2 medium or 3 small ripe bananas, mashed
• 1/2 cup / 85g coconut sugar
• 1/4 cup / 57g butter or vegan butter spread
• 3 tablespoons lemon juice
• 2 teaspoons cinnamon
• 1 tablespoon vanilla extract or to taste

Instructions:

1. In a medium saucepan combine bananas, coconut sugar, butter, lemon juice, and heat uncovered over medium to medium-high heat, allowing mixture to come to a boil.
2. Allow mixture to boil uncovered for about 15 minutes, or until thickened to desired level. FYI jam continues to thicken as it cools. Stir occasionally and make temperature adjustments to the hob so mixture doesn’t burn.
3. Turn heat to low, and add the cinnamon and vanilla extract and stir to combine. You might want to add less than the full amount listed all at once, and first taste your jam and see what it needs, then add the vanilla and cinnamon bit by bit.
