Dessert inspired breakfasts are definitely my thing – carrot cake porridge, Apple Pie Granola and blueberry muffins are all amongst my favourites and this easy, cherry bakewell overnight oats recipe is the latest addition.

Cherry bakewell tart is such a classic British dessert and one of my all time favourites. Recreating it’s distinct flavour in breakfast form is the absolute dream! Soaking the oats overnight makes them deliciously soft and the whole mix becomes so thick and creamy thanks to the chia seeds and coconut yoghurt. I use almond extract to recreate the classic marzipan flavour, it works so well with the maple syrup, vanilla extract and tart cherries.

Filled with cherry bakewell flavours this is a healthy breakfast you will look forward to each day.

Whilst this breakfast might sound fancy, it’s so simple to make. Overnight oats have become a go to breakfast for me, when I’m busy. All you need to do is pop everything in to a jar, mix together and leave it in the fridge and it’s ready to go in the morning, and you can even warm them up in the morning if you fancy. Plus it’s so easy to double or triple the recipe to make a few portions at once.

There are so many different flavour options too, I have linked more of my overnight recipes at the end of this post.
