Prep time: 5 minutes

Prep notes: This is best prepared the night before and left in the fridge - in the morning no need to worry about preparing breakfast - its all ready to go!

This is a variation of a German Bircher Muesli.

The base is either oat flakes or another type of flake (spelt, rye, wheat)... you can buy flake mixes in organic/health shops. Simply oat is great too.

Choose 3-5 of the following to add (around a dessert spoon of each):

- dried fruit (apricots, sultanas, cranberries, goji berries...)

- coconut

- nuts (almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts...)

- seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, hemp, sesame, poppy...)



Mix together and cover with milk - I prefer to use unsweetened almond milk or rice milk, but there are many milk options out there. I do not recommend using soya milk however.

Cover and place in fridge overnight.

In the morning add some fresh fruit - chopped apple, pear, banana, blueberries... whatever is in season...
