Another pudding inspired overnight oats. This week its oats with a date syrup and pecans inspired by sticky toffee pudding. Can't believe i've got to no 14 already, I have the next 10 planned as well.
The morning before soak the dates to make date syrup, see recipe. If your dates are very hard, chop up small to aid the process. You need at least 24 hours if not longer.
The night before soak the oats, everything else can be added the following morning.
During the day before just keep stirring the dates to help them break down.
For the date syrup I use just 4 dates and about the same about of water to cover. As the dates I use are quite hard, I like to chop them up or give them a couple of days to break down. I buy large bags of dates from poundland, nice and cheap for recipes, but a little on the hard side.
1/2 cup oats
2/3 cup non dairy milk
1 tbsp ground flax seed
Mix the oats, milk and flax in a bowl.
Pecans - use the quantity you are happy with. I just use a few chopped up pieces thought-out and a couple of whole pecans to decorate on the top.
Add some syrup and pecan pieces to the bottom of your serving dish. Top with half the oats and then more syrup and pecans. Then the rest of the oats and top with a couple of pecans to decorate the top and pour the rest of the syrup over. Serve and enjoy!
