Overnight Oats – Tropical Pineapple Coconut by Theo Michaels

Course: Main - Dish: - Serves: 1

How great are overnight oats; the gift you give yourself the day before! Using canned fruit has two main benefits; firstly, it extends the shelf life of the oats so if you don’t get round to eating them they’ll last a couple of days in the fridge without going bad, and secondly, they are incredibly convenient that virtually all the ingredients are store cupboard items.


  1. Simply mix all the ingredients together (except the desiccated coconut and save a few chunks of the pineapple) in a jar or glass and place into the fridge overnight, or for at least 4 hours. Meanwhile, in a dry frying pan, lightly toast the desiccated coconut till golden and remove.
  2. When you’re ready to eat, remove the oats from the fridge (add a splash of milk if too thick)
  3. Top with the leftover pineapple chunks and toasted coconut.
