It’s been a while since I’ve even been able to make overnight oats. I absolutely love my Kilner jars and as a consequence they are in pretty much constant use. From luxury desserts, jams and preserves to fermented veggies - I loose track sometimes of where they have even got to!

Finally, desperate to try this recipe I popped round to Sainsbury’s and invested in some more 0.35l jars. Unfortunately this also led to the purchase of these beauties………….... Facetted Kilner Jars 0.25lThey are from the facetted jar range and I simply couldn’t resist them. They’re going to be the perfect size and shape for desserts so watch this space – I’m sure I’ll be making use of them soon!

Today, however, I’m making these, super creamy, delectable and totally moreish overnight oats. I love them because, not only do they taste divine but, I can make them even as long as 4 days in advance ready for super busy mornings.

My favourite, CoYo coconut milk yoghurt adds those, always-good-to-have, probiotics and the Dalfour Jam gives the perfect sweetness, just enough but not too much. And of course oats are simply a powerhouse of nutrients, lowering cholesterol, filling you up with a healthy dose of resistant starch that will keep you energised and balance right through to lunch.
