Mom’s Easy Muesli Recipe

This is another recipe from my mom’s kitchen. It’s a basically an easy-to-make, creamy, thick, healthy breakfast in which you throw anything you want into a tub of yogurt, so feel free to experiment as you wish.  Here’s how I make it for my kids:

1 tub (500g) plain Greek yogurt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup quick whole grain oats

1 Tbsp ground flax seed

1 Tbsp honey

2 cups frozen mixed berries

Empty all the ingredients into a bowl large enough to be able to mix everything together. Mix until combined and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight, or until the oats have softened and the berries are no longer frozen.

Tip: You can also use vanilla yogurt or any other flavoured or plain yogurt, but the plain Greek yogurt makes my muesli extra thick with a protein kick. It wasn’t quite sweet enough for my kids this morning so I topped their bowls off with a tablespoon of strawberry jam. Delish!
