Healthy Overnight Oats Jars

IMG_1503Is anyone else the most ‘phasey’ breakfast-eater on the planet? seriously, one month i’ll religiously eat porridge and peanut butter, the next i’ll be having omelettes, then Weetbix, then yogurt and the one after that i’ll be back to my childhood scraping Vegemite over freshly buttered white bread. Anyway… I used to absolutely love overnight oats, made them every single night before bed and would dream about them instead of my current crush. The texture (and probably look for that matter) is definitely a little weird – but don’t knock it til’ you try it!

Making things in jars is so satisfying – and thus this project made me feel like a real ‘Pinterest Queen’. This recipe is enough to make one jars (I used the K-Mart ones which are $2 each) and are one serving per jar. Obviously this means just get our your calculator or do some mental maths if you want to bulk-make them.


They’re so good for people who like to prepare food on Sunday afternoon for the next few days. I say few days and not week because I literally cannot fathom how people meal-prep for that long… the food starts to creep me out after three days.

I had one of the pictured ones for breakfast this morning and they certainly keep you full from breakfast until lunch (mind you I had a coffee and tea-biscuit too). The whole jar is around 400 calories (but all good calories at that). They take all of about 20 minutes to make including set-up and pack-down and take all of about 5 SECONDS to grab from the fridge in the mad-rush to the train station.

Anyway here’s the recipe…


  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1T chia seeds
  • 15 dry roasted unsalted almonds
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yoghurt (0%) – I used Chobani
  • 1/3 cup Water
  • 1T Pepitas
  • 1–2T Honey
  • 1/2 cup Berries of your choice – I used frozen mixed


  1. Put the oats, chia seeds, water, honey and yoghurt into the jar and mix
  2. Optional: if you want your finished product to look pretty tap the jar a couple of times on the bench to flatten out the mixture and then wipe around the inside of the jar using your finger inside a damp clean cloth.
  3. Sprinkle the chopped almonds on top.
  4. Pour the berries in
  5. Sprinkle the pepita seeds on top.
  6. Add more honey to serve if you want (I’m really used to greek yoghurt and it’s lack of sweetness but if you’re used to a sweeter yoghurt more honey would be better for you)
  7. Leave in the fridge for 2-3 hours (preferably overnight)


Let me know if you make them/like them! There’s a few other overnight oats recipe’s i’d like to try too (once I eat these ones!)

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

When I was younger, Christmas was a feeling

Throughout the month of December I would feel so ‘Christmassy,’ there was an excitement that built throughout the month, peaking on my sleepless Christmas eves and 6am wake-ups. But now being 23, I find have to MAKE it feel like Christmas – or those 24 days will just fly by so fast that I blink and I’ve already have opened that pair of socks and K-mart bath-and-shower kit, and i’m in a food coma on the couch with a paper Christmas Cracker hat on my head.

This year, chasing that Christmas feeling has never been so true. It’s the first Christmas I’ll be spending away from my family – as I have to work. Yep thats right, on Christmas Day. But i’ve kinda come to terms with it now. So anyway, I’ve been trying to engage in as many Christmas activities as I can and listen to carols and eat advent chocolates (don’t really have to try with this one) and anything else that is remotely reminiscent of the festive seeeaaaason.

SO yesterday we did Christmas baking! We made [FROM SCRATCH] gingerbread people, and Christmas tree brownies! I don’t think either of us actually expected them to turn out as well as they did. But we absolutely aced it, and it was such a fun day.

Recipe for Gingerbread people

NB: We used black treacle instead of Molasses (because where the f**k do you find molasses at your local IGA). Also our icing was literally icing sugar and a tiny bit of milk.

Recipe for Christmas tree brownies

NB: This brownie recipe is next level.

Tell me what you think!!

Mars Bar Slice: No Bake


Mars Bar Slice has literally got to be one of the simplest, yet delicious and satisfying treats in the entire world. I decided to make Mars Bar slice today, initially after seeing that the Mars Bars were on sale at Coles for $1 each. I was inspired to bake as tomorrow marks the last day I will work with our breakfast radio team before I fly out to Sydney (but any excuse to bake, right?).

As per usual I was pretty strapped for time today so the less-than-20-minute prep time really made life much easier! Once you’re done with the assembly you simply whack it in the fridge, no cooking necessary!Β I just love how Mars Bar slice cuts, you don’t need a hot blade or a freezing cold slice, a clean, sharp knife separates the slab into perfectly crisp squares of chewy and rich-yet-creamy caramel-covered rice puffs.

Try it yourself – I can assure you it won’t disappoint!



  • 4 x Mars Bars
  • 200g Milk Chocolate
  • 3 Cups Rice Bubbles
  • 70g Butter
  • 1T Golden Syrup


  1. Line a 23cm x 23cm cake tin with grease-proof paper that overhangs the edges slightly.
  2. Chop up the Mars Bars into 1-2cm-sized pieces.
  3. Place the Rice Bubbles in a large heat-proof bowl along with a quarter of the chopped Mars Bar
  4. Melt 50g of butter, the Golden Syrup, along with the remaining three-quarters of the chopped Mars Bar in a pan over a low heat, stirring constantly, then set aside
  5. Stir in this mixture to the Rice Bubble mixture until well combined
  6. Press flat into the lined tin (make sure you get into the corners and try to make it completely level).
  7. Place into fridge to chill for 45-60 minutes.
  8. Melt remaining 20g of butter and all the milk chocolate together (preferably over a bain-marie as chocolate can be temperamental)
  9. Smooth this melted mixture over the top of the set Rice Bubble mixture
  10. Set for a further 30 minutes
  11. Cut into pieces and serve.
