Serves 4

Overnight oats are a healthy, nutritious breakfast – worth the bit of prep involved. This recipe is low in saturated fat and one of your five a day.


175g of jumbo oats
2 tbsp of pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp of sesame seeds
1 tbsp of sunflower seeds
700ml of unsweetened almond milk
Large pinch ground cinnamon
40g of dried cherries
4 soft apricots, quartered
4 soft smyrna figs, quartered
2 pitted dates, finely chopped
1 Earl Grey tea bag
Honey, to taste (optional)


1. Place the oats, pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds, and almond milk in a large bowl. Stir in the cinnamon. Place the dried fruits and tea bag in a separate bowl and pour in enough cold water to come about 2cm above the level of the fruits. Cover both bowls with clingfilm and set aside in a cool place to soak overnight.

2. Next morning, tip the soaked oats into a pan and bring to the boil over a medium heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring regularly, until thick and creamy. If the porridge is too thick, add a little more almond milk or water.

3. Drain the soaked fruits and discard the tea bag. Serve the hot porridge topped with the fruits.
