Makes a mountain of ghastly sticky goo with no texture that tastes only of orange. Only made in any way edible by the fruit. Far too much for two people, this recipe serves 4. I wonder if anyone actually made this before the recipe was posted.

Delicious but too much oat mixture for two - will cut down by half next time.

A really tasty and filling breakfast. I loved the orange zest mixed into the oat mixture. I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh, mashing some into the mixture and refrigerating the rest.

We really enjoyed this but couldn't quite manage to eat all of the oat mixture. I forgot to prepare it the night before so just left it to soak for an hour which was fine.

When preparing the oranges - slice off the top then cut down with a sharp knife all the way round to remove all of the peel & pith. Then slice off the bottom. Remove each segment by slicing through to the centre pith as near as possible to the membrane.
