I’ll let you in to a secret, I don’t faff around with breakfast in the mornings. It’s too much hassle and not enough time and so I don’t bother.
Instead, I make DeliciouslyElla’s Bircher Muesli the night before, whilst dinner’s on the go or while Peter’s washing up, and then whip it out the fridge in the morning with no effort at all (apart from peeling a banana and getting a spoon out the drawer). This bowl full of oats, fruit and seeds is so satisfying in the early morning and extremely quick to prep in the evening. All you need to do is mash up a banana along with some blueberries (I use frozen so I take them out of the freezer about 15mins before I start mashing) and add in some milk. Ella uses Almond milk because of her allergies but I use dairy instead. Then add in the oats, which are your standard porridge oats, along with some seeds (pumpkin, sunflower and chai). Chai seeds are available in supermarkets and health food stores, and help to thicken it up – they’re also a great source of Omega-3.
Then just pop in the fridge and let it do its thing! All you need to do is leave it overnight for at least 8-hours and hey presto! I promise you’ll never want to skip breakie again.
