James Strawbridge's Overnight Oats

Fancy a proper autumnal breakfast? Pair a bowl of nourishing overnight oats with some delicious and seasonal apple and date jam, courtesy of this recipe from James.

Serves 4


For the overnight soaked oats:

1 litre of enriched oat drink

400g date and apricot porridge

 3 apples, grated

2 tbsp chia seeds


For the spiced apple

3 apples, peeled, cored and diced

150g Medjoul dates, pitted and roughly chopped

75ml British apple juice

1-2 tbsp Moose Maple Butter

1 tbsp brown sugar [optional]

1 tsp root ginger, peeled and finely grated

1 tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt



  1. Mix your porridge oats with grated apple, chia seeds and oat drink in a large bowl. Stir well and leave overnight or alternatively portion into glasses or small serving bowls and leave covered overnight in the fridge.
  2. Make a spiced apple compote by heating a tablespoon of Moose Maple Butter in a small pan on a high heat with chopped dates, apple, ginger, cinnamon and apple juice. Add a pinch of salt and sugar to taste. Cook for 10-12 mins until the apples soften and the spiced caramel sauce thickens.
  3. Pour some of the spiced apple on top of each portion of overnight soaked oats and serve with a glass of chilled British apple juice on the side.
