Using jumbo oats fills you up better and keeps you going longer. Like all wholefoods, this type of oats is low GI or slow release, so they keep your blood sugar more steady!

  • 40g jumbo oats (147)
  • 50g blackcurrants (22)
  • Pinch cinnamon (0)
  • 50ml unsweetened soya milk (21)
  • 1 tsp agave syrup (20)
