You are probably familiar with those extremely lazy Sundays after a night out, the greater part entailing lounging around in bed with a constantly grumbling stomach and a craving for greasy food, but absolutely zero motivation or energy to do something about it? That probably describes most of your Sundays doesn’t it ;-)?
The most recent of such Sundays came with a rather interesting craving, but one that had to be fulfilled. After having gone through some emotionally draining turmoil (why can’t we be 5 years old again and play all day long?) in the past few weeks, my partner in crime and I longed for a soothing taste of home. Making proper butter croissants from scratch would have been excessive (although totally worth it if you ever have, let’s say, 6 hours to spare), so we opted for a low effort (and low-fat) version to satisfy our needs!
250g yoghurt of your choice (we used forest fruits)
4 tbsp rolled oats
2 tbsp raisins
2.5 tsp clear honey
1 tbsp caster sugar
a dash of lemon juice
1 banana, chopped into small pieces
a generous handful of strawberries, quartered
a handful of blueberries
a handful of hazelnuts, chopped in half (or walnuts, or pecan nuts, whatever you like..)
- Mix yoghurt, oats, raisins, lemon juice and sugar in a bowl.
- Grate your apple, with the peel, and add to the yoghurt mixture.
- Now stir in the banana, strawberries, nuts and blueberries. Sprinkle over some cinnamon to taste.
- Divide between two bowls. Drizzle the honey over you müesli et voila: quick, simple, filling and delicious.
