  1. Mix the oats, milk, honey, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a glass bowl or container. Stir well, cover and refrigerate overnight.

  3. Top each bowl with 1⁄4 cup yogurt, 1⁄4 cup fresh fruit, one tablespoon of almonds and drizzle with honey. 

Chef Tips

To toast almonds: Pour into a dry pan, set over medium high heat and keep shaking the pan every 30 seconds so as not to burn the almonds. When they are nicely browned pour into a glass bowl, do not leave in the pan as they will continue to cook and may burn.

Mash 1⁄2 banana into oatmeal to omit honey. Stir it in the morning just before eating so it doesn’t blacken.
