Apple and Date Overnight Oats are fabulous. This recipe is a great way to get to eat unctuous fruit, for breakfast, in the winter, that hasn’t flown half way around the world. Dried fruit is amazing, it’s much underused. Dried apple is like squashy, foamy sweets I used to eat as a child. You can of course dry your own apples… And dried dates! WOW! The addition of dried dates make this really rich and caramelly. You definitely don’t need a sweetener with this yum-fest of a breakfast. Delicious.
Apple and Date Overnight Oats are not only the prefect start to the day but with a dollop of rich vegan yoghurt they also a great pudding too. If you LOVE these overnight oats you might also want to try another autumn gem: Pear and Cinnamon Smoothie.

Top Tips – Apple and Date Overnight Oats
You can use your preferred unsweetened plant-based milk. (Take any allergies or preferences into account.) My personal favourites are soya and almond milks.
I often make individual portions (by dividing the recipe by four) and make it in jam jars so I can take it with me when I need to dash out of the house in a hurry!
As this recipe uses dried fruit, I recommend leaving the mixture in the fridge overnight before eating.
