This is so filling! I ate it at 12am and wasn't hungry until 7pm!

Personally, I didn't like it. I missed out the nut butter as I didn't have any but the yogurt was really sour. It was alright when there was a lot of strawberries and honey but otherwise it just tasted sour.

I made mine and ate it immediately, was able to have it for 2 mornings, it tasted amazing and was so filling too.I did not add the berries since they were still frozen. Great to know that a breakfast could be tasty, filling and easy to make. The combination of the almond butter and yogurt made for a nice topping.

Easy to adapt recipe, makes the oats last longer into the morning for me befors I get hungry. I added a teaspoon of pumpkin seeds and half a teaspoon of chia seeds for added fibre and micronutrients.

I love this recipe! I have this for breakfast most mornings now however I do both steps in the morning. I have found that when you make it overnight it goes hard and you can't taste the cinnamon at all. Also, definitely try adding nuts and seeds. I love adding walnuts and sunflower seeds as the walnuts especially taste amazing with honey. In addition, if you don't like honey, use syrup. Although this is something I have not personally tried, syrup goes well with walnuts and I imagine it would taste great!
