    Overnight oats with squash, pecans and honey

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus cooling and overnight soaking
    • Cooking time: 40 minutes
    • Total time: 55 minutes, plus cooling and overnight soaking

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    500g butternut or golden butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and roughly chopped (about ½ large butternut)
    ½ tsp ground cinnamon
    40g pecan nuts
    140g rolled oats
    270ml milk (or almond drink), plus extra to serve
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    2 tbsp maple syrup or honey, plus extra to drizzle
    4 tbsp Greek yogurt (or coconut alternative)

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Put the squash in a roasting tin, sprinkle over the cinnamon, cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes, until soft. Set aside to cool. Roast the nuts on a tray for 4-6 minutes, until a shade darker. Remove, leave to cool, then chop.

    2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the oats, milk, vanilla, maple syrup or honey plus a pinch of salt. Once the squash is cool, mash with a fork (or whizz in a food processor) until smooth. Stir into the oat mixture, then cover and chill overnight.

    3. The next morning, give the oats a stir; the mixture will be quite thick. If you prefer it thinner, then add a few tablespoons of milk. Divide the oats between 4 bowls (or jars, to transport) then top with the yogurt, pecans and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.
