I’m such a fan of tinned Black Doris plums that I devoted a chapter of Homecooked to ways to use them. Lots of people have told me how much they love that section – if you’re one of them, this bonus recipe is for you.
Black Doris Overnight Oats
This serves four people generously, or you can eat it as individual serves over consecutive mornings. Use coconut yoghurt or whipped cream (the decadence!) instead of Greek yoghurt if you like.
- 1 x 850g tin Black Doris plums
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 4 tablespoons ground almonds or LSA
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla essence
- 1 ½ cups Greek yoghurt
- 6 squares good quality dark chocolate (I use Whittaker’s 72% cacao), finely chopped
Drain the plums, reserving 1 ¼ cups of the syrup. Stone the plums and put into a large bowl with the reserved syrup. Stir in the rolled oats, ground almonds or LSA and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, gently fold through the yoghurt. Sprinkle over the dark chocolate and serve.
My children were absolutely delighted to be allowed chocolate at breakfast 🙂 … I loved it!
