morning goodness



  This delightful morning treat is an attempt to get back to some healthy roots.... even if its just the morning meal!  No, this is actually one of my favorite cereals and I do love a good muesli.  This recipe actually comes from one of my favorite Naked Chef episodes.  The one where Jamie does a huge midnight breakfast for his wife and her girlfriends after a night out.    What a treat!

muesli

8 large handfuls of rolled oats
2 large handfuls of ground bran
1 handful of chopped dried apricots
1 handful of chopped dried dates
1 handful of crumbled walnuts
1 handful of smashed almonds, hazelnuts or brazil nuts
(I added)
1 handful of coconut
1 handful of wheatgerm
1 handful of ground flaxseed

Combine all and put in a air tight container.  
Best served with a good lug of milk or soy milk poured over a couple of hours or overnight before consuming.
