Spiced Berry Overnight Oats



One of my favourite breakfasts is overnight oats, I love being able to have a speedy breakfast that I have at hand in the mornings. The advantage of this recipe is that you can add any seasonal fruits or flavours to it to suit individual taste. It also makes a super “on the go” breakfast if you prepare it in a jar, all that remains is to put a lid on and take a spoon.

For a festive Easter twist, I’ve added a heaped teaspoon of Nutella to recipe. Did you know a portion of Nutella is 15g and one heaped teaspoon and can be eaten as part of a varied breakfast and enjoyed by the whole family?
