OATS IN CHOCOLATE with cherry compote…


Oat base:
⅓ cup rolled oats
⅓ cup chocolate soya milk
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
1 tablespoonsmaple syrup
Cherry compote:
900 g ripe black cherries
3 tablespoons caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Oat base: Before you go to bed, mix all the ingredients together in a big jar.
Pop the jar into the fridge and leave it for the night.

In the morning, layer up your favourite yogurt (i.e. cherry Alpro) on top of the oats, then add the dark cherry compote to finish off. If you are short of time pop the lid back on your jar and take it with you, or enjoy it slowly with a cuppa.

Cherry compote: Stone and halve the cherries, place in a heavy bottomed pan and stir in the sugar.

Leave for half an hour to let the sugar draw the juices.

Add the vanilla extract and place the pan on a medium heat, stir from time to time. When the fruit has softened take off the heat and leave to cool before storing in the fridge.
