To make, simply prep the base in a jar and pop your toppings on in the morning – it's that easy. While I’ve used pear and berries, you can switch up the flavour by adding your own fruit combinations like banana and diced apples or adding a drizzle of nut butter or honey.

Featuring wholesome ingredients like activated nuts, rice syrup and chia seeds, this easy, no-cook recipe makes for a great grab-and-go breakfast to enjoy every day of the week.

The benefits

Oats are a nutritiously rich choice for many diets. On top of being high in fibre and antioxidants, they’re also a great source of vitamins and minerals.

What’s more, soaking oats like I’ve done in this recipe helps break the starches down – making it easier to absorb its nutrients and making it more digestible.

This household staple is also easy on your wallet. This pocket friendly option is especially great if you’re after a healthy choice that nourishes.

What else can I add?
