Our Apple and Custard Overnight Oats taste like a dessert, but they are an amazing slimming friendly breakfast.

These Overnight Oats are not layered in the same way a traditional overnight oats recipe would be. We found that sometimes the oats can stay a bit dry, so we decided to layer in a different way to keep the moist, creamy texture. We also use chia seeds to set the “custard” as they swell up when wet.

Wondering what chia seeds are? They’re super seeds packed full of goodness, and they make you feel fuller for longer. You can get chia seeds from your local supermarket.

What diets is this Apple and Custard Overnight Oats recipe suitable for?

This Apple and Custard Overnight Oats recipe is suitable for vegetarian diets.

Hi Vickie, you can use plain yogurt, with vanilla extract and some sweetener & some custard flavouring. Lakeland do it apparently! Hope this helps x
