DIABETESOVERNIGHT CHOCOLATE ORANGE OATS

OVERNIGHT CHOCOLATE ORANGE OATS

Preparation Time: 5 minutes | Cooking Time: None

Overnight oats have become really popular recently; I take them to work most days (be sure you have a leakproof container!); they take me just a couple of minutes to prepare each evening.

You can adapt the recipe to suit your taste but I particularly like this combination. You can leave out the honey if you like, it is naturally very sweet due to its high fructose content so you only need a small amount, we keep bees in our garden so I tend to use this in preference to other sweeteners.

One portion is absolutely packed with nutrients. One serving provides around a third (10g) of an adults fibre requirements, the omega seed mix provides omega 3, another nutrient we all need more of and the cocoa powder contains iron.

The yoghurt and milk will provide around half of an adults calcium requirements. The dish overall has a low Glycaemic Index and should easily keep hunger pangs away until lunchtime

Method

  • Mix all the ingredients together, adding the
    fruit on top. If it seems a bit dry then add a
    little more milk.
  • Refrigerate overnight and serve at room
    temperature for the best flavour (you can
    leave it to warm up in your bag on the way
    to work).
