Another pudding inspired overnight oats. This week its inspired by peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake. Can't believe i've got to no 15 already, I have the next dozen planned as well!
The night before soak the oats, everything else can be added the following morning.
Bottom biscuit layer
1/4 cup dates
1/4 cup pecans or walnuts
Whizz up in a food processor to a biscuit crumb consistency and layer at the bottom.
1/2 cup oats
2/3 cup non dairy milk
1 tbsp ground flax seed
Mix the oats, milk and flax in a bowl. The next morning add it on top of the dates and pecan mix.
Peanut butter and chocolate layer
1/2 cup cashews
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp Sweet Freedom Mild Syrup (like bee free honee in america) or agave syrup
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
sprinkle of cocoa powder to decorate (optional)
Grind the cashews in a food processor to a powder, not for too long thought, don't want them turning into cashew butter! Add the vanilla extract and sweet freedom or whichever liquid sweetener you are using. (This cream was based on one from Raw Food Kitchen: Natural Recipes for Health and Vitality and she actually used 4 tbsp of raw agave syrup, but I didn't want to make this costly or too sweet, so I reduced it to two.) and about half the water and process, adding more if necessary. I used all 1/4 cup, but I think I should of used a little less. Because I was only making a small amount my large food processor didn't cope very well with making this smooth, was a little grainy as half of it was under the blades, however it tasted good and that is what mattered to me. So bare this in mind. I guess I would of been better making double and using the rest for a dessert. Then add the peanut butter and process until incorporated. Pour out half of this onto the top of your oats layer, I poured it on one side only. The add the cocoa to the rest and process until incorporated and pour on the other half of the oats. I then swirled them together using a spoon and sprinkle cocoa on top. Then either refrigerate or eat!
