Quick and easy overnight oats inspired by one of my favourite flavour combos, the mighty carrot cake! This will help keep you energised & feeling fuller for longer. The recipe can easily be scaled up to make a bigger batch, and will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Top Tip: Soaking grains, nuts & seeds overnight before eating them helps your body digest them more easily, while also making the nutrients more bioavailable. 

Ingredients (makes 1)

  • 1/2 large carrot, grated
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (can be substituted for buckwheat groat)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup OR 1 medjool date chopped up
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Optional add ins: walnuts, raisins, coconut flakes

Method

  • Add all the ingredients to a jar with a lid, stir to combine.
