Berry Refrigerator Oats

I am trying this for breakfast tomorrow.

I love porridge, especially on those cold winter mornings, but this is a cold version that you prepare the night before, and leave in the fridge overnight.  You can add pretty much any fruit and/or nuts to it, whatever you would generally have on your porridge or cereal in the mornings can go in, but I have some raspberries and blackcurrants that I picked on the allotment, so that is what I am using this time.  I mix it all in a jar, which is just the right size.  I am using a 1lb jam jar.


  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup berries
  • additional berries for topping


  1. Combine all ingredients, stir, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Top with additional berries if desired.

note: if you are using something bigger, like banana or strawberries, then chop them up into bite sized or smaller pieces.
