I am really enjoying my overnight oats! I loved the peanut butter and banana ones and the other day I tried Raspberry Bakewell Oats, with some of the berries from our garden! Delicious!
One of the things I fell in love with when I first came over here was Bakewell Tarts. You can get them everywhere, pre-baked sitting in their little pastry cases. Shortcrust pastry with a scant filling of red jam and a bit of frangipane, and then topped with icing and half a cherry. I prefer them without the icing and cherry on top, but Todd likes them both ways. I have done small individual tarts in the past . . .
And a full tart using a puff pastry base. Both were delicious!
The main flavours in a bakewell are raspberry and almond. These overnight oats have both of those.
And its a lot easier to do than bake a pie or tarts . . .
You just simply layer the ingredients in a jar. First the oats, then some raspberry jam, some raspberries, flaked toasted almonds and some milk with a touch of almond extract added. Totally delicious and quite healthy too! I hope you will give them a go! They are also perfectly portable so you can eat them on the go, or even at your office desk!
