First make the base: Gently melt the coconut oil and chosen syrup in a small pan, remove from the heat and stir in the oats, ground almonds and vanilla extract until you have a slightly sticky mixture.
Spoon this into the base of a kilner jar, or between two ramekin dishes. Chill.
Now make the filling: Simply place all of the ingredients together in a blender and whizz up until thick and smooth. Pour this over your oat base and leave in the fridge for at least an hour, or overnight
Now make the fruit topping: Place the dried fruit, orange zest and juice honey and a dash of water in a small pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 10 minutes, until the fruit has plumped up and absorbed most of the liquid.
Set aside and leave to cool - the remaining liquid will form a light syrup.
When you’re ready, top your vanilla cream with the soaked dried fruit - then divide up and dig in!
Note: If you’re not eating it all straight away and want to keep it for a few days, simply make everything up in the recipe, but keep each part stored separately in airtight containers. In the morning, assemble and eat straight away or take to work/the gym in a pot. Easy peasy!
