Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Continental
Servings: 3

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 5 pitted dates chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1 apple peeled, cored and grated
  • 2 1/2 cups lowfat milk you can use whole milk, but using low fat milk makes it an even more low fat meal
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin seeds/ pepitas
  • 3 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • 30 blackberries
  • 3 tablespoons of honey optional
  • 6 tablespoons nonfat Greek yogurt

Instructions

  • In a large container, combine oats, oat bran, dates, dried cherries, raisins, apple and milk.  Stir to combine, cover and place in refrigerator overnight.
  • Most of the milk will have been absorbed.  The oats will now be soft and palatable.
  • Place 1 cup of the muesli in each bowl.  Place 2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt on top of each serving.  Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the honey on top, if using (the fruit provide a lot of sweetness - I found it tasted just fine when I omitted the honey as well).  Sprinkle 1 tablespoon each of the pumpkin seeds and the almonds.  Top with 10 of the berries.

Notes

Prep time is overnight resting time.
If you would like your muesli drier, you can reduce the milk quantity to 2 cups.
