Method

  1. The night before, put the cherries, 1 tbsp maple syrup (or honey) and 1 tbsp water in a small, lidded saucepan over a low heat. Cover and gently cook for 5-10 mins until softened and juicy. Transfer the cherries to a bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving the cooking juices in the pan. Simmer the juices over a medium heat for 2-3 mins until reduced and syrupy. Pour over the cherries and leave to cool completely before placing in the fridge overnight.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, flax seeds, cinnamon and almond drink. Cover and transfer to the fridge overnight.
  3. The next day, divide the oats between 2 bowls. Top with the cherry compote, grated apple and nut bites, and drizzle with extra maple syrup, if you like.
