Elvis Overnight Oats.

I’m guessing you already know about my obsession with breakfast foods and you’ve probably worked out I’m quite a lazy cook – I want lovely tasting food without breaking a sweat. This is when overnight oats become the master (or mistress) of foods. You sort it all out the night before, wake up the next morning and BOOM! Breakfast is already waiting for you, and it’s a helluva lot more exciting than plain old cereal. Oh, I forgot to mention – this also has 1 of your 5 a day. You’re welcome.

Mash up yer ‘nana. Add in the rest of the ingredients and really mix it all up. Pour the mixture into 2 containers with lids and whop it in the fridge overnight. When ready to eat, give the oats a good stir and add your toppings.
