Overnight oats with apple/banana purée

Aug 29, 2018 | 0 comments

Most mornings I eat my oatmeal porridge which is cooked with water and a bit of oatmilk to make it more creamy. I top that with a handfuld of almonds a and a tiny bit of honey, and it keeps me full until lunchtime. It’s really nutritious and quite cheap too. Sometimes I do get kind of bored eating the same porridge day in and day out though, so the following variation is really delicious when I’ve got the time and energy to prepare it the night before that is. It’s not that it is super time-consuming making this breakfast, and if you like you can make a double portion so you have enough for two mornings in a row. The recipe is inspired by a similar overnight oat from Deliciously Ella, which as many of you know is my favourite blog (and app) to find healthy vegan/vegetarian dishes.

Langt de fleste morgener spiser jeg havregrød lavet på vand og en smule havremælk, for at give den en lidt mere cremet smag, som jeg topper med lidt honning og en håndfuld mandler. Det holder mig mere eller mindre mæt hele formiddagen, det er nærende og så er det ganske billigt også. I perioder kan jeg dog godt blive lidt træt af at spise den samme grød dag ud og dag ind, så den følgende variation er virkelig lækker – når jeg har tid og overskud til, at forberede det aftenen inden altså. Det er ikke fordi det tager lang tid at lave, og man kan med fordel lave dobbeltportion så man har til to morgener, hvis man har lyst. Opskriften er inspireret af en lignende grød fra Deliciously Ella, der som mange af jer ved er min go-to blog (og app) når det kommer til sunde, veganske/vegetariske retter.

For the purée you need:

2 ripe bananas

2 apples (or any other kind of fresh, sweet fruit) – save some chunks for topping

  • Blend and put aside


For the oats you need:

100 g ground oats

2 tablespoons of chia seeds

2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

2 dl oatmilk


  • mix everything together in a bowl



Fresh fruit

Coconut flakes

Alpro vegan yoghurt (I use the one called “Mild & Creamy”)



Til puréen skal du bruge:

2 bananer (gerne modne)

2 æbler (eller en anden sød, frisk frugt) – gem lidt til topping

  • Blendes, og stilles til side.


Til grøden skal du bruge:

100 g havregryn

2 spsk chia frø

2 spsk honning eller ahornsirup

2 dl havremælk

lidt vand

  • Blandes sammen i en skål.



Frisk frugt (det som du har gemt fra puréen)

Kokos flager

Alpro vegansk youghurt (jeg bruger den der hedder “Mild & creamy”)


It’s rather important that the porridge/oats is not to thick once you mixed all the ingredients, because both the ground oats and the chia seeds takes up a lot of the fluids – in that case the porridge will become very thick and hard to eat the next day. So it’s better that it’s a bit watery when you pour it into your desired containers. Usually I simply adjust the amount of water and oatmilk if I think it looks a bit thick. I pour it into glass containers the night before – the purée first and then the porridge on top. Then I place it in the fridge until the next morning where I will top if with yoghurt and then the fresh fruit and coconut flakes. It’s SO delicious and fresh, and again it’s just a nice variation to my traditional oatmeal porridge which can get kind of boring from time to time. One day I actually ate the same purée and toppings on my oatmeal porridge because we had some overripe fruit in the fridge, and that was really good too! And you can use which ever kinds of fruit you like or may already have in your fridge. The original recipe is with mango which is really good too, and I’m sure it would be really tasty with for example strawberries as well.

Det er vigtigt at grøden ikke er for tyk når du har blandet alle ingredienserne til den sammen, da både chia frøene og havregrynene suger rigtig meget væske – det kan gøre den lidt en kamp at komme igennem dagen efter. Så den skal helst være lidt vandet, når den hældes over i den valgte beholder. Jeg plejer at justere lidt på øjemål med enten mere vand eller havremælk, hvis den ser lidt for tyk ud. Jeg plejer at lave grøden om aftenen – hælder puréen i glas først, og derefter kommer jeg grøden ovenpå. Så stilles grøden i køleskabet til dagen efter, hvor jeg så topper den med lidt yoghurt, frugttern og kokosflager. Det smager simpelthen SÅ lækkert og friskt, og igen er det en lækker variation til havregrøden der i perioder godt kan være lidt små-kedelig at komme igennem. Den ene dag spiste jeg faktisk selvsamme puré og topping med yoghurt ovenpå min havregrød, fordi vi havde noget overmodent frugt der skulle spises. Det smagte også rigtig lækkert, og man kan jo bruge nærmest hvilken som helst type frugt man nu lige synes eller ligger inde med. Den originale opskrift er med mango hvilket også er super lækkert, og er sikker på det også ville smage rigtig dejligt med fx jordbær.
