Soak oats in buttermilk:

This needs a little planning. Mix the oats and the buttermilk, cover and chill for two hours. Serve topped with grated apple, fresh blueberries and toasted almonds. Try the buttermilk-soaked oats with berries recipe here.

Add cream to your oats:

Place 1 cup oats in a saucepan and just cover with water simmer for 10–15 minutes, adding warm milk as the oats absorb the liquid. When the oats are tender, remove from the heat and add a swirl of cream. Serve topped with caramelised bananas and a dusting of nutmeg. Try the creamy oats with caramelised banana recipe here.

Soak oats overnight:

Place 200 g oats, the juice of 8 oranges, 2–3 grated apples, 3 seeded and grated cardamom pods and 3 T honey into a large bowl. Cover with clingwrap and chill overnight. Serve topped with a generous spoonful of yoghurt and a few slices of orange and chopped pistachios. Try the overnight oat jar recipe here.
