Porridge is one of our favourite ways to start the day. But it doesn't have to be beige. This very special recipe by Niki Webster for overnight oats really packs a triple whammy of flavour, colour and goodness.
Niki, founder of Rebel Recipes explains: “As a breakfast obsessive, I think it’s a little sad that it sometimes doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Why not start your day with something amazing and vibrant instead of a limp piece of toast? Haskapa adds an incredible colour but it also packs a nutritional punch - absolutely perfect to add to breakfast dishes.
