I am a fan of the BBC Good Food website. It’s a good place to find recipes that I can try out with a view to sharing with you all – that is if they pass muster of course! With last month’s excesses in evidence around my waistline, I fancied something that was filling but not fattening. These Peanut Butter & Date Oat Pots fit the bill nicely. They can be made in quantity in advance which is useful. Naturally sweetened with dates and cinnamon, they are also a good source of calcium.
Peanut butter & date oat pots
Ingredients serves 6 (or one person for several days)
180g porridge oats
75g crunchy peanut butter]
40g stoned Medjool dates, chopped
2 tsp vanilla extract
600g plain bio yogurt
Ground cinnamon, for dusting if liked
How to prepare
Tip the oats into a large bowl and pour over 600ml boiling water. Add the peanut butter, dates and vanilla and stir well. Cool, then stir through 240g of the yogurt. Dilute with a small amount of water if the consistency is a little stiff.
Spoon into six glasses, then top with the remaining yogurt and dust with cinnamon. Cover each glass and keep in the fridge until ready to eat. Will keep well for up to five days.
As I have used Medjool dates in this post you might be interested in this article on the health benefits of eating Medjool dates.

I am also a huge fan of Annabel’s utterly delicious Butternut Squash Soup with Sage and Honey – have you tried it yet?
