Black Forest overnight Oats


Serves 1

This is a breakfast for when you feel like indulging, very chocolatey and creamy with a bit of tanginess from the Cherries. Basically it’s dessert for breakfast. For a quick version use yoghurt instead of oats.

Ingredients for the Oats;

3/4 C. Soy milk, or an other milk of your choice

1/4 C. Oats GF

1/4 tsp. Vanilla extract

2 tsp. sweetener like Stevia/Erythritol or Agave

Put all the ingredients in a Mason Jar or container and leave overnight in the fridge.

The next morning, blend the Oats until you have a smooth oat cream.

You can warm it in the microwave, or leave it cold.


For the Cherry sauce;

1/2 C. Cherries, pitted and cut in half

1/4 tsp. Arrowroot

1 tsp. Stevia

1 tbsp. Water

Mix all the ingredients and microwave on high for one minute. It should be a medium thick sauce. Add a little more water if necessary to get the right consistency.

For the Chocolate Shavings;

1 4 oz. Dark Chocolate bar 70%

Take one whole Chocolate bar, unwrap and put it on a piece of baking paper. Microwave on high for one minute.

Shave curls slowly using a cheese slices. Hold the chocolate steady with one hand and with the other shave, slowly. Put the chocolate curls on an other piece of baking paper. You don’t have to use all the chocolate, just as much as you are going to be using.

To assemble;

Take a pretty glass and start with a layer of Oats, then spoon over half the Cherry sauce. Sprinkle with Chocolate shavings. Repeat. Finish with the Chocolate shavings. When you use warm Oats, the chocolate will slowly melt thru the Oats and cherries. Really Good.
