Cherry Bakewell Overnight Oats

Cherry Bakewell Overnight Oats

Make ahead breakfasts: the saviour of busy people across the planet. On days when I’ve forgotten that I really need to wash my hair, make some lunch and buy a train ticket I am incredibly grateful for the days when at least I know I just need to grab a jar of cherry bakewell overnight oats out the fridge as I dash to the train station ticket office with my hair still wet.

The recipe I’ve listed below makes just one jar of this addictive breakfast but it’s easily doubled, trebled, quadrupled if you have space in the fridge for all those jars. I say addictive because well, I really like just about anything (and everything) cherry bakewell flavoured. It was my favourite cheeky coffee house treat, it’s my go-to sweet cocktail flavour and it’s delightful as an oaty breakfast.

Now, even if you’re not the grab-and-go breakfast type, I still recommend you at least try overnight oats at least one in your life. You don’t have to eat them cold – you can warm them up if you prefer. I nearly always warm mine up by popping them in the microwave for about 1 minute. If I lived in a hot country… or didn’t frequently leave the house with my hair still wet from the shower, I might be persuaded to eat them cold more often. But.. I don’t. How do you eat yours?
