Peach, ginger and blueberry overnight oats

Peach, ginger and blueberry overnight oats

Preparing your oats the night before lets you start the day with an easy morning. These creamy oats combine fresh fruit, crunchy hazelnuts and warming stem ginger for a super-quick tasty breakfast.

  1. In a bowl, mix the oats, yogurt, milk, stem ginger and syrup until well combined. Divide the mixture between 4 bowls (or sealable jars if taking to work), then top with the peaches and blueberries. Cover and chill in the fridge overnight.
  2. The next day, remove from the fridge and scatter 1 tsp hazelnuts over each to serve. The oats will keep in the fridge, without the fruit and nuts, for up to 3 days.

Flavour twist: For a chocolate version, swap the ginger for ½ tbsp cocoa powder. Substitute the hazelnuts with 1 square of dark chocolate, finely grated over the top, to serve.

Tip: Use whole rolled oats as they have a lovely creamy texture; instant or flaked oats are smaller and will break down too much.
