I make up the oats the night before. Then assemble in the morning.
The night before soak the oats.
1/2 cup oats
2/3 cup non dairy milk
1 tbsp ground flax seed (or chia seeds if you prefer)
Mix the oats, milk and flax in a bowl. Leave in fridge overnight and they are then ready to be assembled in the morning.
I then added to the oats chopped apple (1 large or 2 small), a tbsp or two of raisins and a tsp of mixed spice. I used raw apple, but you could use cooked or apple sauce if you prefer. I then just mixed it in. As it was extremely cold this morning I warmed this in the microwave for 1 minute to take the cold edge off it and added a dash of dried ginger. I usually leave it to come to room temperature, but as it was 10am I didn't want to wait any longer! Mix in and enjoy!

I have been posting new overnight oats post every week, but as its now getting cold, I think I will just do them occasionally. I still have quite a few ideas, but with work hours and the cold weather making me crave warm food, they will now be less frequent. My other overnight oats recipes. We are also on facebook if you wish to follow and get involved in different discussions and giveaways!
