Carrot Cake Bircher Muesli

Bircher muesli or overnight oats are such an easy way to kickstart a healthier breakfast routine, leaving no excuses for skipping breakfast. Put them in a container or jar and they can even be breakfast on the go. This version includes carrot, apple, sultanas, nuts and seeds, spiced to taste just like carrot cake. Top with a spoonful of yoghurt and you’ll find it edging closer and closer to the real thing. Serves two, or keep the extra portion in the fridge for the next day.

1½ cups almond milk
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup grated carrot
½ cup grated apple
¼ cup sultanas
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp maple syrup
½ tsp natural vanilla extract
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp ground cloves
zest of an orange

To serve (optional): almonds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, orange zest, yoghurt.

The night before, mix all ingredients together well, cover and refrigerate. The next morning, remove from the fridge and give everything a good stir.

Spoon into individual serving bowls, garnish with extra nuts and seeds, a little more orange zest and a spoonful of yoghurt if you like.
