Who says healthy can't be tasty?

This Post was written by Jonathan from Foodari

Like most of us I had far too much to eat over the festive period and whilst Christmas is a distant memory there are certain reminders around the waistline (and the credit card!). Therefore although my New Year's resolution is starting late it is to be healthy in the mornings and start the day with a wholesome breakfast - I will see how this goes and look to progress right the way through to lunchtime and beyond.

So here's a tatsy starter to the day, named after a very small girl called Molly who quite liked it.

I hope you enjoy it as much as she and I do...


Porridge Oats


A selection of nuts (any of - walnuts, hazel nuts, almonds, brazil nuts)

Currants or sultanas

Dried apricots roughly chopped

A few handfuls of oats to one handful of bran. The bran gives your muesli some depth. Add as much of the other ingredients as you feel comfortable with. The nuts must be put into a tea towel and beaten with a rolling pin. Its an experience that is worth making the muesli in the first place! The brazil nuts add a wonderful creaminess.

It keeps in an air-tight container for ages. Whenever you feel like a snack grab a handful add some fruit, milk and off you go. Personally I think banana is a must!
