Sometimes, if not most times, we struggle to find time for a proper breakfast during the working week, which can be bad for our health. We’re all too accustomed to grabbing whatever we can in our cupboards, or even buying a quick sandwich in the supermarket on the way to work. We hope this on-the-go overnight oats breakfast will cut the need for rushing in the morning, and keep you energised for a productive day.

You can make this recipe the night before, and store it in your fridge in Tupperware or a glass jar. The combination of sweet, crisp apple, creamy cinnamon oats and crunchy seeds makes for a delicious start to the day, making a quick breakfast option that can easily be replicated throughout the week.
