I adore oats so much, my day just doesn’t start off right without them so am always trying to find  new creative ways of eating them!

I used my nutribullet for this recipe but you can use a food processor 🙂

3/4 cup oats

1/2 cup almond milk

1 tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup

For the puree:

2 peaches

A dash of almond milk

 

Method

  1. Cut the peach into small chunks and blitz in nutribullet until smooth (or food processor)
  2. Add the coconut and dash of almond milk and reblend
  3. Pour a layer of the puree into your serving glass
  4. Mix the oats, almond milk and syrup together and add a layer on top of the puree
  5. Pour the remaining puree on top and refrigerate ready for serving the next day

Recipe: Banana & Buckwheat Pancakes

These are my go to pancakes as they are soooooooooo yummy! I like teaming them with a fruit salad on the side and a small amount of low fat whippy cream and some melted dark chocolate. This recipe should make around 4 pancakes, depending on how big you’re making them.
