Black Forest Gateau Overnight Oats

What happens when Black Forest Gateau meets Cherry Bakewell…!? The result, is something truly magical!

Why wait to have dessert, when you could be enjoying it for breakfast as overnight oats? Creamy Cherry Bakewell oats, sweet cherries and a black cherry & cacao dark chocolate ganache make this a truly tasty breakfast treat.


For the oats layer:
• 40g Oat Pantry Cherry Bakewell Porridge Oats
• 100ml unsweetened almond milk

For the Chocolate Ganache layer:
• 1.5 tsp Butter Belle Black Cherry & Cacao Almond Butter
• 2 tbsp dark cocoa powder
• 2.5 tbsp water
• 1 tsp maple syrup

For the Raspberry & Cherry Jam layer
• Small handful of frozen cherries & raspberries
• 1 tbsp chia seeds
• 1/2 tsp maple syrup


1. In our overnight oats jar, glass or bowl mix together the oats and almond milk, then microwave for 1 & 1/2 minutes and mix again. Leave to sit and firm up whilst you prepare the other layers.
2. To make the jam, place into a small bowl the frozen raspberries, cherries, chia seeds and maple syrup. Microwave for 1 minute, then take out of the microwave and mash together with a fork.
3. Top your oats with the jam, place in freezer whilst you prepare the ganache, this allows the warm jam layer time to set.
4. Mix together in a separate small bowl the Butter Belle Black Cherry & Cacao Almond Butter, cocoa powder, water and maple syrup, until you get a thick paste. Then spoon over the top of your mixture.
4. We topped ours with optional flaked almonds and more frozen raspberries and cherry pieces.
5. Leave in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
6. Enjoy!

Recipe: Simple Cherry Compote

It’s slightly tangy, not too sweet and just perfect to enhance breakfast oats.

The great thing about this recipe is you can use frozen cherries when fresh cherries are out of season, so you can enjoy this topper all year round.


  • 3 cups fresh or frozen cherries, pitted
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • A pinch each of salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon to taste


  1. In a sauce pan, add the cherries, coconut sugar, lemon, and spices. When the cherries have defrosted (if using frozen) over high heat, bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and bring to a simmer.
  2. Simmer the cherries until they become thick, with a texture more like syrup; this can take about 20 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and serve over your prepared Oat Pantry overnight oats, we’d highly recommend using our Cherry Bakewell Porridge Oats for this. You can also tub up any excess compote and store in the fridge for a couple of days for future use.
