Recipe: Apple and cinnamon overnight oats

An easy workday breakfast for those with high cholesterol

Overnight oats, or Bircher muesli, are the perfect healthy breakfast for busy people, with the added benefit of cholesterol-reducing oats.

Layer the ingredients in a jam jar, or other securely lidded container, and leave in the fridge overnight. The oats absorb the liquid – coconut milk drink in this case – and in the morning, you can simply grab and go.   

Coconut milk drink can be found next to they soya milk in most supermarkets, and contains a fraction of the calories of tinned coconut milk. Using a mix of oats and oatmeal also makes a more interesting texture, but you can make this with normal oats.
