{Recipe} No cook breakfast: Apple and cinnamon muesli

A repost from my old blog

How many times have you stumbled out of bed wishing you had already had something ready for breakfast instead of having to put on a frying pan and crack those eggs? Well, that happens to me pretty much every morning so I tend to skip it even though my mum keeps drumming it into me that ‘breakfast is the most freaking important meal of the day!’. Ok, she didn’t really say it that way. So when I stumbled upon this post by Fat Mum Slim, I made it (a variation of it anyway) right away. The beauty of this recipe is that you can have whatever variations you crave.

Apple and cinnamon muesli (serves 1)


½ cup traditional oats (not quick)
½ cup milk (I used whole as I love the creaminess; skim is fine too)
2 tbsp vanilla yogurt (go on sneak a couple of spoons more)
½ apple, coarsely chopped (eat the rest :P)
Honey for drizzling (optional)
Ground cinnamon for sprinkling (optional)
  1. Shake oats, milk and yogurt up in an airtight container and leave in the fridge overnight.
  2. Good morning! Drizzle the honey and sprinkle the cinnamon on, grab a spoon and enjoy!
Tips and variations: 
  • This recipe can be easily multiplied and for breakfast on-the-go, simply put in separate containers.
  • Substitute apple with a handful of blueberries/strawberries and top with more.
  • Substitute apple with a handful of dried cranberries and milk with cranberry juice (great body cleanser).
  • Substitute vanilla yogurt with plain/or any kind really.
  • If you use a yogurt with fruity bits, you can skip fresh fruit altogether.
The Big Kahuna is a chronic snacker and he says when he has this for breakfast, he does not think of snacks at all, gets him straight to lunch. So do have a try.

  1. Ah nice, I will make this for Fahim definitely!
    Err, 1 quick question btw, the oats have to be cooked first, no? Or do you use them raw?
    (sorry the question has to be this silly...)

  2. Nope, that's why it's so awesome, no cooking required! :D The oats absorb the milk and yogurt so they'll have sort of a chewy texture, not as mushy as when they're cooked. Let me know how he takes to it! <3
