I love breakfast. I really, really love it.
I'm not joking when I say that I actually go to sleep thinking about it. This is actually me:
Anyway, I'm always trying to create new and delicious breakfasts to keep me going and fuel me for the entire morning. I never understand those who don't eat breakfast because...well, how can you not?
Eating breakfast is so important for your body and mind. It keeps you going for the morning, boosts your metabolism, stabilises your blood sugar levels - and who would want to miss out on all of that?
Anyway, this Apple and Blackberry Bircher Muesli is utterly delicious, and much healthier and lower in sugar than the traditional kind. Topped with a giant spoonful of hazelnut butter (because a Nutella-esque taste makes EVERYTHING taste better, right?), this is the perfect meal to get you through those cold and frosty mornings.
APPLE AND BLACKBERRY BIRCHER MUESLI WITH HAZELNUT BUTTER
100g rolled oats
170g unsweetened apple puree
1 apple (skin on), grated
Large handful blackberries
50ml almond milk
150g Total Greek yoghurt
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mixed berries and Meridian hazelnut butter, to serve
1) Mix together all the ingredients (apart from the hazelnut butter and mixed berries) in a large bowl, then cover and place in the fridge overnight. Serve up in bowls in the morning, alongside a dollop of hazelnut butter and a sprinkling of mixed berries.
