Breakfast in a Jar!

I love this recipe from Sarah Wilson's book 'I Quit Sugar for Life'. She calls it 'Carrot Cake Porridge Whip'. I call it 'breakfast in a jar' because I often take it to work with me in a jar. Why a jar and not a plastic container? Well, I'm trying to cut down on my plastic use because of the environmental impact of plastic, and the possible health issues (chemicals leaching out during freezing / heating). It also looks so beautiful in glass and I just get pleasure from looking at it! Here is the recipe:

50g rolled oats 

1 Tbsp chia seeds (optional)

350ml coconut milk including cream on top

1 large carrot finely grated

1 tsp cinnamon

quarter tsp ground ginger

pinch ground nutmeg and pinch salt

Half frozen banana (I use unfrozen)

2 Tbsp crushed walnuts

Yoghurt (I make my own Cashew Yoghurt)

2 Tbsp coconut flakes

Additional walnuts and coconut flakes to serve


Blend everything up together until smooth, tip into a container and leave overnight in fridge. In the morning decant into jar with a layer of yoghurt in the middle and a layer on the top with extra nuts and flakes. Take it with you to work for breakfast or for snacks throughout the day.
