Chefs tips
  • This is a very flexible breakfast - you can use virtually any fruits and nuts. Try with pears and dried blueberries, topped with hazelnuts or walnuts.
  • Use dairy alternatives to the milk and yogurt for a delicious vegan version.
  • Try adding cinnamon or a little ginger for some added flavour.
  • Use gluten-free oats for a gluten free version.¬†
