Pomegranate and Apple Overnight Oats

If you are looking for a delicious breakfast that will fill you up until lunch, then you can't go wrong with overnight oats. I have to admit being pretty late on the overnight oats bandwagon, but I am totally sold.

Let's just say I am not a morning person. Even my boys have learnt that it is best not to approach Mummy until she has finished her morning coffee. I used to skip breakfast as I didn't have time or didn't feel hungry. Of course this meant I was snacking by 10 am. If I am in a rush I grab for cereal which only really keeps me full until 11. Overnight oats on the other hand keep me full for longer. 

The beauty of overnight oats is that you can make them the evening before and they are sitting there in the fridge waiting for you.

When South African Fruits sent me a hamper full of delicious goodies, from conference pears to avocado, I knew I was going to make my breakfast with the biggest pomegranate I have ever seen!

I have written the recipe for one person as it makes more sense with the quantities, however, I usually make two up at a time for me and my husband.

Pomegranate and Apple Overnight Oats


  • 2tbsp porridge oats
  • 2tbsp plain yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate seeds
  • 1/2 a Gala apple
  • 5 almonds
  • A splash of milk
  1. Place a tablespoon of porridge oats at the bottom of a small jar
  2. Layer on a tablespoon of yoghurt
  3. Next add a layer of pomegranate seeds
  4. Then repeat steps 1-3 again. 
  5. Add a splash of milk and leave in the fridge overnight.
  6. Slice half a Gala apple and add to the top with 5 almonds.

The yoghurt you use is down to you. Greek yoghurt is lovely but I add a touch more milk if I use that. Frozen pomegranate works well if you don't have a fresg one to hand or its not in season. What is your favourite fruit to use with overnight oats?
