Make this. No arguing – just make this now and you could be eating it for breakfast tomorrow. It took me over a week to get round to making it & I am cursing myself for wasting those days when I could have been EATING this instead of my boring old cereal.
This recipe is from Emily who is the same lady who brought refrigerator oats into my life. It was really easy to make, but the smell coming from the kitchen for the last five minutes of cooking was almost unbearably good. The edges did get slightly over-done, so I chopped them off & DH and I ate them there & then.
TBH I wasn’t sure how well this was going to go down at breakfast the next day, so I crumbled half & chopped the other half into flapjack squares, but I needn’t have worried, everyone loved it & we ate the whole lot between us (2 adults + 2
greedy small children)
Update Oct 2015: My latest thing is to take some of this to work along with some plain Greek yogurt for my breakfast – delicious!
