Ingredients

  • 30g oats
  • 100ml whole milk

Instructions

Pop all the ingredients in a bowl, or a jar if you’re taking it to work; mix it all up and place in the fridge ready to enjoy in the morning!

Before serving stir through the copped walnuts or scatter them on top.

Add a bit of extra milk if you’re like me!

Nutrition Info

Peanuts

Peanuts are also a rich source of manganese which also helps with having fantastic bones and skin as well as helping to control blood sugar. And in these days of diabetes epidemics that’s a huge bonus.

Nuts for the win!

Oats

Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre.

Oats are a great source of the soluble fibre called beta-glucan. That’s what makes porridge kinda viscous and it stays quite viscous as it passes through you, sweeping up any excess cholesterol as it goes. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!

Oats do a special thing – as they pass through your intestine their bulk presses against its muscly walls. It presses back in response and by doing so its muscles get stronger. Oats are literally like a sparring partner for your digestive tract!
