Vegan Bircher Muesli in a Kilner Jar

I love a ‘Bircher’… I first had it in the health food cafe in Byron Bay (Australia), so have a habit of saying it in a pretty bad Aussie accent!  This vegan version suits me though, I’m just not keen on milk and love the taste of coconut milk.  I think it’d be just as good the dairy way though if that’s your preference? Ingredients for 4 portions: 1 medium Kilner jar, this is 1ltr 150grams rolled oats 2 tablespoons ground almonds or desiccated coconut 3-4 handfuls soft fruit or berries (fresh or frozen) 1 handful of seeds 1 tin coconut milk 1 tsp ground cinnamon additional almond or coconut milk if required. Method: 1. Put the dry ingredients and berries or fruit in the jar. 2. Add the coconut milk and give it a good stir. 3. Leave in the fridge overnight and add additional milk to serve as required! This is a great breakfast to play around with, adding whatever fruit, seeds or spices you fancy! Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hazelnut Chocolate Porridge

Thanks to Ella for turning back on to porridge, perfect as the weather turns chilly and juicing or smoothies are just too cold.  My mum’s mum is Scottish so oats are sacred to us… Although I’m not sure Robina MacDonald would like this one?  It’s a far cry from oats, water and salt! Ingredients (for 1 serving) 1 handful of rolled oats 1 handful of raw hazlenuts 1 handful of raspberries (fresh or from the freezer) 1 dessert spoon raw cacao 1/2 tsp vanilla extract hazelnut milk to cover Method: This smells amazing while it’s bubbling! Chuck all the dry ingredients in the pan and cover with the hazelnut milk.  Add the vanilla extract and simmer. Add a little more milk if required, or depending on how thick you like your porridge… If you like you could sprinkle a few cacao nibs on top, the bitter cacao and raspberries make a fab combo! let me know what you think?
