On Monday mornings I get up very early.  Too early to eat.  By the time I get to Waterloo, though, I am hungry, so I often buy breakfast at the station, then eat it on the train to Portsmouth.  For a long time that breakfast was a bagel, but the overcooked egg was often flavourless and when the Moma stand opened I was happy to switch.  Last Monday the "adverse weather conditions" meant no Moma stand, and thus no breakfast for me, which got me thinking:  I could make that stuff myself.

To be prepared the day before.  You will need:

  • Rolled Oats (1 cup per serving)
  • Apple Juice (approximately 1 cup)
  • Yoghurt (plain or fruity)
  • Fruit (if plain yoghurt is used)
  • A pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg (as preferred, if plain yoghurt is used)

Prepare in two stages:

  1. Place the oats in a Tupperware container and cover with apple juice, and leave to soak.
  2. Once the juice has been absorbed by the oats, stir on a few spoons of the yoghurt, fruit, and cinnamon, and leave in the fridge over night.

I used plain Greek-style low-fat yoghurt and added a few raisins, dried cherries, and a pinch of cinnamon for flavour, but I'm sure a flavoured yoghurt would work just as well.

The result looks a lot like porridge, and is a very yummy healthy breakfast.

Sounds like by Merekat (4.00 / 2) #1 Mon Feb 09, 2009 at 12:56:27 AM EST birchermuesli. I tend to eat it for lunch rather than breakfast though. Fruit is generally grated apple as a minimum, with fruit-of-the-forest type berries if I want to turn it bright pink.

That's what I was going to suggest by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #7 Mon Feb 09, 2009 at 05:43:14 AM EST

It's very popular here, it's usually stocked along side the other yoghurts in normal supermarkets.
