Pukkolla – what in the heck is that? Well, I used to live in England and fell in love with Jamie Oliver and his recipes. One of my faves is Pukkolla. Basically Pukkolla is a muesli. But it can also be considered overnight oats. When it is made the night before the texture is so smooth and creamy!
And it is healthy. 1/4c of Scottish Oats has 6g of protein. 1 whole egg has 6g of protein. But you have to add in the fat content too. 1 egg white has 3.6g of protein. A great source of protein for sure!
Here is the recipe – it is also available for a FREE download (no sign up required) so go on and grab it cause it really looks cute when printed out 🙂 Just click on the recipe and it will download directly to your inbox.
Cut up you dates, apricots, almonds (or other nuts) and walnuts.
As you can see in the photo above – I have 2 different brands of oats for the Pukkolla. One already has the oat bran in it.
I use Scottish Porridge Oats. Regular Scottish Oats would work too. I am really not sure what the difference is. Personally, I think the Scottish Oats make a much creamier oatmeal then something like Quaker Oats. I also don't think they are as processed as Quaker.
Use your hands to mix really well. Break up those sticky dates and apricots so that they are disbursed through out the bowl,
I buy my apricots and dates (Medjool are best) from Trader Joe's and Amazon. I buy my Scottish Porridge Oats on Amazon too. I live in the middle of cow country so shopping is at a minimum.
This Pukkolla recipe will make a lot and stores well in an air tight container. I love these OXO ones.
The night before:
Grab a cup or two of the dry mix. You will need to experiment to see how much is best for you. Grate 1/2 apple per person. Cover with milk (any type will work). Make sure the apple is completely covered so it does not get brown.
The next morning…add more milk if necessary. Add berries or a smashed banana or both. You choose! And enjoy that yummy goodness.
Now, you definitely can eat this the morning of without soaking the night before. Just as yummy…just not as creamy.
Oh, BTW, the OXO container has a QR code on the front. I just have to hold my phone's camera in front and the recipe appears. Go on…give it a try. Choose open in Dropbox or Download. Want to know how to create your own code? Stay tuned….I got a special something coming your way!
