  • 2 Add the apple juice and stir.
  • 3 Add the yoghurt and stir again.
  • 4 Cover and refrigerate and leave to soak for a minimum of 10 minutes or up to 2 days.
  • 5 When ready to serve, place the Chaucer Blackberries into the bottom of your jar/cup.
  • 6 Add your oat mixture to the cup.
  • 7 Serve topped with either honey or maple syrup, yoghurt if desired and the gingerbread sprinkles for crunch.
  • 8 The method can be adapted to suit your needs, it could be made up in its entirety just before serving and the customer told to wait a few minutes before eating.


For a unique twist, add ¼ tsp Ground Ginger and 16g (0.6 oz.) of Sunflower Seeds with the oats at stage 1.
