The dietitian explained that oats are one of the ‘biggest offenders’ for a meal that doesn’t keep you full for very long.

‘Whether it’s a sachet of oats made with just water or a small portion of oats made with un-sweetened plant milk and berries – there’s just not much to it!’ Jaime said. 

While oats themselves are a ‘great source of complex or slow release carbs and fibre’, Jaime said a meal with oats is often missing a decent serving of protein and healthy fats.

Hundreds who saw the dish said they loved the idea of putting a spin on their regular porridge oats, and would definitely give it a go.

‘Sounds delicious, I would definitely give that a go!’ one person posted.

‘This is so true for me. I make a smoothie with yoghurt and skim milk and pour it over muesli. While I feel full in the moment, usually in 30 minutes I am hungry all over again,’ another added.

‘Will give this a try!’

A third posted: ‘This is perfect for winter!’
