A wonderfully warm and nutritious breakfast in winter, and equally delicious served chilled in summer! Or, you could even try it for a simple, healthy winter dessert – just serve with cream or custard….
2 cups rolled oats
⅓ cup sliced dried apricots
2 tablespoons sultanas
1½ cups apple juice
50g raw pecans
50g raw hazelnuts
50g raw whole blanched almonds
50g raw macadamias
1 medium red apple, halved and thinly sliced
½ cup low fat natural yoghurt
¼ cup skim milk
2 tablespoons honey (optional)
Place the rolled oats, apricots and sultanas in a bowl and pour over the apple juice. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Place all nuts on a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven, cool, and chop roughly.
Add the nuts to the rolled oat mixture, along with apple, yoghurt and milk. Stir until completely combined. Serve with a drizzle of honey if desired.
Eating a low GI breakfast like Bircher muesli will help satisfy your appetite and provide longer lasting energy to keep you focused all morning until lunch. This muesli will keep well in the fridge for 2-3 days.
