Serves: 2-3 portions

This recipe is one you can mostly prepare the night before so is good for those who are busy in the mornings.

Chia seeds are listed on here but are not essential – if you leave them out reduce the milk a little. You can usually find them in good supermarkets in the health food area or with the nuts and seeds.

Once you have got the right consistency in this recipe, feel free to change the fruit, maybe use half milk and half apple juice, use some nuts instead of seeds – play with it and make it your own.

100g good quality oats
2 Tbs chia seeds
1 Tbs pumpkin seeds
1 Tbs sunflower seeds
1 grated apple
350 ml low fat milk or almond milk
1 Tbs maple syrup

1 pear
Sprinkle of cinnamon
½ Tbs chopped up dry fruit (optional)

  1. Mix together the oats, seeds, grated apple and milk, syrup and vanilla extract and leave in the fridge overnight.
  2. In the morning, chop up the pear and the optional dried fruit into small pieces, and sprinkle on the cinnamon to taste.
