Tiina: “This recipe is a celebration of Nordic oats and Nordic berries! This is one of my favourite breakfasts and very easy to make: basically just mix the ingredients in a jar, put the lid on and keep in the fridge overnight. Decorate with berries in the morning and enjoy!
The variation possibilities are endless and I’ll share a few tips after the recipe.”

You can vary this recipe in several ways, here are some tips:
1 .Use different berries and seasonal fruit and different types of nut butter like peanut butter and hazelnut butter.
2. You can even leave out the berries and add some chopped chocolate pieces instead.
3. You can also add other healthy seeds to make this even more wholesome: hemp seeds, sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds.
4. You can also use roasted fruit, which gives a lovely warming element and makes this a perfect brekkie on winter weekends.
