Ingredients:  

Night before

  • cup wholegain oats
  • cup milk (e.g. almond, rice, dairy)
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp linseeds
  • 1 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1 handful fresh or frozen berries (e.g. strawberrues, raspberries, blueberries, mixed berries)

Morning of

  • 3 Tbsp plain greek yoghurt (or sub for coconut yoghurt if dairy-free or vegan)
  • 1 grated apple or pear
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Optional to top: extra fruit, seeds, yoghurt...

Method:

The night before breakfast

  • Add to a bowl the oats, milk, chia seeds, linseeds, coconut and berries. Mix well, cover, and pop in the fridge overnight. If you're going to be eating on-the-run, pop it all into a travel container ready to go the next morning.

Morning of breakfast

  • The oat mixture will have soaked up the liquid overnight and be stiff. To loosen again dollop over the oats plain greek yoghurt and grated apple, and mix well until smooth! Add any extras on top if desired, then dive in with a spoon. Or if eating on-the-run, pop on the container and take with you out the door.

Notes:

Dairy-free or vegan? Use coconut yoghurt and dairy-fee milk.
Batch-cook: Whip up a large batch of the dry mixture to save time when preparing single servings; simply scoop and add your wet ingredients!
Substitutions: This recipe is forgiving. Feel free to mix and match berries - I tend to use frozen for this, especially as they help keep the muesli at a cooler temperature when taking it on the run. Go for whatever nuts or seeds you have on hand!
