About a week ago I made Vegan Overnight Oats for breakfast and I hated them, but loads of people gave me suggestions as to how I could improve them, and seeing as I had another really early start today, I thought I might try one of the suggestions and see how I liked them done another way; I decided to try my friend Fleur’s suggestion and do it nice and appley flavoured, with no banana (the bit that I had trouble with). This is what she said:
“Have you tried soaking the oats in apple juice, and then adding grated apple in the morning with some lemon juice and honey? I guess it doesn’t really solve the weird/cold/texture issue – but it may seem less like cold porridge that way…I find the grated apple breaks the texture up a bit and makes it seem less stodgy…soaking some raisins with the oats and juice so they plump up is also a good move (provided you like raisins!)…and then go crazy with the cinnamon maybe?! xx”
I’m happy to say it actually tasted much nicer than my previous attempt! I still had a bit of trouble getting on board with the coldness, but it tasted a lot more like muesli this way, and much less like cold porridge, so thanks so much for that idea! It also literally takes 5 minutes to prepare, so I might be having this a lot more when I have to be at work early :)
40g of Scott’s porridge oats
100ml of apple juice
