These Rhubarb and Custard Overnight Oats are a variation of our popular overnight oats recipe, plus they are great for calorie counting and plans like Weight Watchers.

We like to layer our Rhubarb and Custard Overnight Oats a little differently to other recipes, but we think our way stops the oats from becoming too dry, so give it a try!

For the bottom layer, we have rhubarb (with a hint of ginger) which we mix in with the oats. Next, we have a ‘custard’ layer. This is made with half a pot of banana and custard fat free yoghurt, some quark, a little sweetener and some vanilla mixed with 1/2 tsp of chia seeds.

We’ve added chia seeds to this recipe to help ‘set’ the “custard” layer, as they swell up when wet giving the “custard” layer a nice set texture.

If you don’t have chia seeds, you can leave them out and use 40g of oats.

I am not in UK, and cannot get muller lights. Is there any alternative you can suggest for the baked oats recipes?
