Rhubarb and Custard Overnight Oats

These Rhubarb and Custard Overnight Oats are a variation of a slimming friendly favourite. Great for calorie counting and plans like Weight Watchers.

Regular readers of our recipes, will probably know that it took us 21 weeks of slimming before we tried overnight oats. They were just something we never really fancied.

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

However, once we did try them we were left wondering why we’d not tried them before!

Rhubarb and Custard Overnight Oats

If you’ve seen our other overnight oats recipes, you’ll know that they’re not layered in the typical overnight oats sense.

We find that sometimes the oats can stay a bit dry, so we decided to layer it in a different way. On the bottom we have a layer of 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 banana & custard Muller Light, some Quark, some sweetener and some vanilla mixed with 1/2 tsp of chia seeds.

We add Chia seeds in there to set the “custard” as they swell up when wet. Thus they set the “custard” layer & get a really nice set texture.

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

Want to try some more Overnight Oats?

We have a few more overnight oats recipes for you to try, with more to come:

We use a sweetener with the same weight and sweetness as sugar, so you can substitute for the real stuff if you want!

There are lots of high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

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.

And if you’re looking for a jar for your overnight oats we recommend these ones over on Amazon , or there are these clip ones.
