Open sesame overnight oats

I love opening the fridge to find my brekkie looking appetisingly back at me. Today it was some sesame overnight oats and a lovely mix of sesame, tahini, dates, mango, banana and coconut.

This is really quick to put together, just a bit of chopping. You don’t need a blender either as you can easily stir or whisk the milk and tahini together, so not much washing up which is always a good result.

I use tahini a lot in salad dressings and of course humus but it’s fantastic for sweeter, non savoury dishes as well. It’s slightly less sweet than the nut butters and it works brilliantly with coconut and tropical fruits.

Open Sesame overnight oats (serves one)

open sesame

  • 150ml coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons tahini
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 40g oats
  • 2 teaspoons desiccated coconut
  • 1 medjool date – chopped
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 mango

Whisk or stir the tahini into the coconut milk, then stir through the sesame seeds and oats.

In a jar or bowl layer up the mango, followed by the oat mixture, then top with sliced banana, chopped date and the desiccated coconut.  Leave overnight.
