Prune Overnight Oats

If you'd prefer to try the cold version of my prune porridge, try this! Unfortunately, I had run out of flax seed, so this can be made with or without it.

Ingredients (fills one jam jar, serves one)
for the overnight oats -
1/3 plain porridge oats
1 tbsp flax seed (optional)
1 tsp flaked almonds
1 tsp linseeds
1 1/2 tbsp plain yoghurt
4 tinned prunes and 3 tbsp juice from the tin
2 tbsp water
the rest milk (roughly 2-4 tbsp)

for the layered glass -
1 banana
2 tbsp yoghurt

1. Place all these ingredients, apart from the milk in a suitable jam jar. Mix thoroughly, mashing up the prunes, and gradually add the milk until a slightly running consistency occurs.

2. Put the jar in the fridge overnight or for a couple of hours.

3. Remove the jar from the fridge and pick a suitable glass to do the layering. Spoon one heaped tbsp of porridge into the glass, followed by chopped banana and a spoon of yoghurt. Continue this a few times to produce a glass of goodness to wake you up in the morning.
