These Posh Overnight Oats – Tiramisu a different way to enjoy your HEB of oats in the morning.
So we’re 21 weeks into our Slimming World journey and we’ve never tried overnight oats. That is until this week! We were looking through some recipes for them, and none really took our fancy, so we decided to ask our Facebook group.
We had some really interesting suggestions, and we’ll be putting some of them up here in due course. So excited! But until then we have these bad boys – “posh” layered Tiramisu overnight oats.
Check out our Syn free Apple Pie & Custard overnight oats here.
They’re not layered in the typical overnight oats sense, we found that sometimes the oats can stay a bit dry, so we decided to layer in a different way. First up we have a coffee layer, packed with 40ml of fine espresso. If you don’t have an espresso machine you can use 40ml hot water to 2 tsp coffee granules.
Then just like real Tiramisu, we have a “cheese” layer. After much back and forth we decided on Quark, but you can use half Ricotta half Quark for a more authentic taste.
Wondering what Chia seeds are? They’re super seeds packed full of goodness & make you feel fuller for longer and can count towards your Healthy Extra B. This is why we only use 32g of Oats, so you don’t have to syn them. They also swell up when wet, thus they set the “cheese” layer. So we get a nice set texture, just like real Tiramisu. You can get chia seeds from your local supermarket.
Sukrin Gold doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Posh Overnight Oats – Tiramisu.
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
The berries on top provide some speed food to set up your day, and add a bit of acidity (thanks Kate L for the suggestion!!)
