Usually served cold out of the fridge, this warm version of overnight oats made in the slow cooker is next level,” says Nathan Anthony. “[It’s] a sneaky way to get veggies in at breakfast, while at the same time tasting of carrot cake.”

Method:

1. Mix all the ingredients, except the walnuts, orange and honey, in your slow cooker. Cook on low for eight hours. If you’re an early riser, throw it all in and cook on high for three hours.

2. Serve with the chopped walnuts, orange zest and a drizzle of honey.

Tip: If it looks a little dry at any point, add a splash more milk. If cooking overnight, add a few extra splashes at the start so it doesn’t dry out.
