Flahavans - Porridge for breakfast

Overnight fruit and yoghurt porridge

My first breakfast for Flahavans #PerfectPorridge challenge is a great way of having porridge, fruit and yoghurt ready when you get up but it is also portable meaning if you are not a great breakfast eater you can take it to work and have it when you are ready.
Mix together 40gm Flahavans rolled oats with 75ml of milk, add 1 Tbsp coconut oil and one pot of your favourite fruit yohurt really well and put into a small Kilner jar or other lidded jar. Top with a layer of fresh fruit (the same fruit as the yoghurt is a good idea) or if you want just use some local runny honey or jam (as below) which you can add in the morning.
Pop the jar into the fridge and leave it overnight and that is as complicated as it gets.  You can heat up in the microwave to take the chill off or eat it straight away.  I usually take mine to work to eat once I have settled down at my desk.
Either way Flahavans rolled oats provide you with a full stomach for the morning thus helping you to avoid those mid morning nibbles which we all know don’t do you any good unless they are fruit.

Coming soon, recipes for:-
1.       Breakfast flapjacks, almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds, linseed and peanut butter.
2.       Oatmeal muffins, bars

For these recipes follow my blog so you don’t miss out as they will be coming in a week or so.

Thanks to Flahavan's for the #perfectporridge hamper.  I was not paid to write this post or the recipes and as usual all opinions and photos are my own.

  3. Oh great idea Heidi, it sounds really tasty. Though I'm not sure how you mix a lump of coconut oil into oats?

    1. You can heat the coconut oil till it melts and then it mixes in really well.
