Luxurious oat bowls

by Peachy Palate on October 25, 2011

I think the reason I wasn’t partial to oats and a child or young adult was because I didn’t attempt to incorporate anything other than milk with them. For me bowls of oats are all about the flavours you add to them, the variety of texture the toppings supply and the picture perfect bowl of prettiness you can create. They look and taste delicious.

A standard bowl of plain porridge leaves little to be desired in the appearance and taste stakes. Even my simple food loving Dad throws in a few raisins, goji berries and the occasional handful of banana chips to his super-sized bowl of oats he consumes without fail every single morning.

I now love my oat bowls… and today’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats falls in to my top three… (I couldn’t possibly put them in order of preference).

They were incredible fruity, packed full of raspberries and strawberries, topped with toasted peanuts, peanut butter and of course jelly (or jam, whatever you prefer to call it!).

Such luxury for a mid week morning!

The other two, though not entirely easy to select, I have many favourites, are…

My Tropical Mango and Pineapple Overnight Oats…

And my Chocolate, Pear and Pecan Pie Overnight Oats.

I love them all though!

I actually quite like plain porridge! But I love adding cocoa powder, nuts and seeds, almond or peanut butter, raspberry jam, dried fruit, grated carrot or courgette, berries…so much to choose from :)
