Apple crumble is one of Britain’s much-loved desserts, it’s cosy, comforting and absolutely delicious.

Whether you like yours served with a jug of hot custard, a scoop of vanilla ice cream or smothered with luscious cream, it’s the ultimate dessert after a Sunday roast.

It may contain one of your ‘five a day’ but unfortunately it’s not the best option to eat regularly if you’re trying to eat healthy.

Instagram recipe creator Cakeontherun is known for her healthy twists on classic puds and she has come up with a delicious alternative, so nutritious it’s good enough for breakfast.

She calls it apple crumble overnight oats.

Made in a jam jar and prepared the night before, you can wake up to this high fibre, low fat pot of goodness straight from the fridge.

However, if you don’t want to wait overnight, they are perfectly delicious after 30 minutes.

So if you’re going for an early dog walk, morning run or dropping the kids at school, you can come home to something super healthy without lifting a finger.
