Soaked overnight oats

My children love this little breakfast that I make. I prepare it the night before it is served and let it become beautiful in the fridge.

In layers from the bottom add quick oats. Soak in apple juice so it is quite wet. Layer a generous amount of frozen berries (raspberries pictured). Top with a layer of yoghurt (dairy free if you like) and a drizzle of rice malt syrup.

It travels well in a leak proof container and can be frozen ahead of time too.

Such a delicious breakfast. Have a lovely week. 20141021-211236-76356840.jpg
