Fruitful Overnight Oats with Tahini Drizzle

Fruitful Overnight Oats with Tahini Drizzle

Welcome to your new favorite weekend breakfast recipe! We love topping overnight oats with fruit, as well as incorporating it into the base recipe. The fruit adds extra crunch, flavor, nutrition and, of course, beauty to your bowl (ie, perfect for entertaining or fulfilling your inner food stylist!). The final drizzle of tahini is a wonderful balance to the acidity of the fruit and makes it extra creamy. 

You may also recognize this recipe as Bircher Muesli, which is what our founder, Rachel, calls it. She often makes a double batch for her family on Sunday nights, so that breakfast is sorted for the rest of the week.   
 
INGREDIENTS
2 c old fashioned rolled oats
½ c coconut water
½ c unsweetened apple juice (use water if you prefer to keep it less sweet)
2 apples grated on a box grater (unripe pears, green mangoes or quince also work)
Juice ½ lemon
½ c Greek yogurt (plant based yogurts work well here too!)
2 tbsp Seed + Mill Organic Tahinifor drizzling
Extra seasonal fruit to serve (figs, kumquats and edible flowers all look so pretty!)

The frosting for this recipe is especially unique in that it combines tahini with mastic, an indigenous plant based gum grown in Greece. The piney scent of the mastic, together with the earthy tahini cuts through the sweetness of the frosting, giving this cake an indulgent topping that we couldn't stop eating! The mixing bowl was literally licked clean.....
