Breakfast is served! This is a really simple overnight oats recipe that takes minutes to prepare the evening before. You can adjust the sweetness by adding more or less honey during prep or when you serve in the morning. Or experiment with different toppings for another dimension! more “Blueberry and Lemon Overnight Oats”
What better way to show off Scottish oats than in a flapjack. Smothered in the syrupy deliciousness of honey and golden syrup and studded with juicy dried fruit, the oats are still the hero that holds it all together. I fully intended to make the original recipe with mango and sour cherries (and definitely will do one day – what awesome flavours) but sadly on this occasion time got away from me and I had to make do with what was already in the cupboard. This meant a more classic raisin and sultana combination, keeping a little bit of the exotic twist with desiccated coconut. The flapjacks were light and just the right side of crumbly – a lovely texture thanks to the addition of desiccated coconut to the oats – and tasted gorgeous! You could also try swapping the raisins/sultanas for dried blueberries plus the grated zest of one lemon or chopped dried apple and dried cranberries.
