Anyone who has seen my check in thread will have noticed that I eat the same thing every day for breakfast, except on Sundays. I find this is filling enough to keep me going until lunchtime, it doesn't contain any crap, and it's prepared in the evening so it's really useful for anyone who is busy in the mornings.

So here is my recipe for my version of bircher muesli which I believe is also called overnight oats.

50g oats
small handful of raisins
a banana, sliced or chopped
a handful of frozen berries, I use frozen mixed berries because they're cheaper.
milk, sometimes I use regular milk, sometimes I use almond milk.

Mix everything together in a bowl and leave in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, take it out, I like to add some seeds on the top for a bit of crunch.

Eat.

If anyone is looking for a new breakfast to try, I recommend this, it's also great for adapting and using up whatever bits of fruit, nuts etc you have hanging around.

Thanks, I'll try it! Still looking for the perfect lasts-five-hours breakfast.

Sounds really good! Slightly strange question - don't the chopped bananas go brown overnight?! I'm going to try it, I have those ingredients in the cupboard Smile

The bananas don't go brown if you bury them a bit Smile

Hi Skycat - this sounds great Smile

I've seen versions of this recipe that have yoghurt, but not milk. I avoid dairy, but making with almond or coconut milk would be lovely.
How much milk would you use? Is it the same as for porridge?

thank you

I never really measure the milk, I guess I just add enough to make it all mix nicely. Not so much that the oats and bits are floating but enough that it's not like concrete Very Happy
Maybe add as much as you would for porridge, you can always adjust it to what suits you. I prefer to use regular milk because of the calcium, but my husband avoids dairy because it makes him snore. So sometimes it's quicker just to get out one type of milk, then I use his almond milk Very Happy

Well, I will give it a go over the weekend and report back. To be honest, I never measure the milk when I make porridge either, I just sort of 'know' so I will use the same method.

Like this one a lot.

Amazing how many variations there are on oatmeal.

Might be worth a book...

OK so reporting back!

The same amount of milk as for porridge is too much (for me) as it seems they don't absorb as much of it when cold, but milk until it just cover the oats seems to work v well Smile

Good brekker for when you have limited time in the morning to make something wholesome, thanks!
