Winter oats with coconut milk & chia seeds



1 Pear/apple chopped roughly

1 Medjool date - optional for sweetness

1 1/2 Cups of water

1 1/2 Cups of Organic Rolled Oats

2 Tbsp of Chia seeds

1 tsp of flaxseed meal (optional)

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 cup of dried preservative/oil free fruit such as sultanas, figs or cherries

4 Tbsp of Coconut Cream/milk

1/2 extra liquid - water or nut milk

Extra goodies for topping - hemp seeds, seeds, nuts, banana or coconut



  1. In a pot add the chopped pear & date & simmer for 10 mins

  2. In a medium mixing bowl (something you can pop a plate over or even something with a lid) add the other ingredients & mix

  3. When the fruit is cooked, pour it into the Oats mix, liquid & all

  4. Add another 1/2 Cup of liquid, I use water as the coconut cream has already added a nice creamy goodness, but if you prefer a nut milk use that

  5. Cover & place overnight in the fridge

  6. To heat scoop out a portion & top with water/milk until nice & creamy.

  7. Cook on a low heat for 10 mins

  8. Add with your favourite toppings & serve
