Looking for a healthy tasty breakfast?
Try our cinnamon apple overnight oats with date butter recipe! The recipe is so easy and you can substitute banana for the apple and / or add a few drops of vanilla extract for variety throughout the week. Also the date butter makes enough for three or four breakfasts and is tastes great on toast or as a yoghurt topping!
Ingredients for the Overnight Oats
• 40g of Virginia porridge oats
• ½ apple (grated or finely chopped)
• A small handful of chopped pecan nuts
• 150ml of milk or soya / almond milk can be used as an alternative
• ¼ tsp of ground cinnamon
• 1 tbsp date butter (see details below)
To make the overnight oats, add all of the ingredients into a jar, stir and then cover and store in the fridge overnight. If you prefer your oats warm, you can microwave the mixture for around 30 seconds to release the aromas and flavours.
Ingredients for the date butter
• 100g of finely chopped dates
• 3 tbsp of boiling water
• pinch of ground cinnamon
To make the date butter, put the dates in a heatproof bowl and slowly add the boiling water. Mash the dates using a fork to make a creamy paste. Stir in the cinnamon. Set aside to cool.
