'This healthy and filling breakfast takes just a few minutes of preparation before you head to bed,' Angela writes.

'While you get your beauty sleep, the muesli soaks in the fridge, allowing the yoghurt to soften the oats and the flavours to meld.

'The result is a lightly sweet, super-creamy bowl of chilled oats.

'In the morning, all you have to do is add a few toppings and then kick back and pamper your health with this delightful breakfast.

'Feel free to change up the mix-ins to your heart's content; nuts like walnuts would be a nice substitute for the almonds, as would seeds like sunflower, sesame, chia, or flaxseed.

'Seasonal fruit is a must in my mind. It adds just the right amount of natural sweetness to this dish.'


  • 2 medium apples, peeled and cored
  • 100g gluten-free rolled oats
  • 250ml almond or coconut yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons raw pepita seeds (or shelled sunflower seeds)

1 Dice one apple and grate the other on a box grater. Place the apples in a large bowl and add the oats, yoghurt, pepita seeds, raisins, and cranberries. Stir to combine.

2 Cover the bowl and refrigerate the muesli overnight or for at least 2 hours, until the oats soften.

3 Serve the muesli in a bowl, topped with fresh fruit, nuts, maple syrup, and a pinch of cinnamon.
