100 g Fat Free Natural Yoghurt
1 Apple, chopped
1 tsp Granulated Sweetener
1 pinch Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract

To make these super tasty apple cinnamon oats you will need a jar or bowl, as it will be easier when it comes to layering. Weigh out 40g of oats and then add the cinnamon and granulated sweetners to the oats then mix well. 

Take your jar or bowl and then begin layering the ingredients. First add the oats, then the yoghurt and then top with fruit. Continue until you have used all the ingredients and then add the vanilla extract. 

Cover and put in the refrigerator overnight so the porridge absorbs all the yogurt. In the morning stir so all the layers are mixed together and top with more fruit.
