I’ve finally realised that the art of an epic breakfast requires 30 seconds of preparation the night before which on 1-2 hours a sleep at the moment (thanks Sonny!), is just about all I can muster up. And when that preparation involves chucking handfuls of ingredients in a bowl that really you just happen to have in the cupboard and swishes (not a word) of milk, I’m on board. Think of the below recipe as a guide; you can easily substitute almonds for the sunflower seeds, for example.
Mix together roughly 100g porridge oats, a handful of raisins, a handful of sunflower seeds and a few ground cardamom pods. Then grate an apple into this mixture (don’t peel the apple – win!), add 150 ml of a milk of your choice (I like almond milk) and a good swig of apple juice (optional). Then simply cover with clingfilm overnight and stumble into the kitchen the next morning, uncover and tip on a dollop of yoghurt, coconut flakes, the leftover grated apple and any fresh fruit you happen to have (berries are a winner).
Best enjoyed with a big brew <3
