Apricot and Prune Muesli

cook 10 mins
  • 75 g (3 oz) whole hazelnuts
  • 75 g (3 oz) rolled oats
  • 75 g (3 oz) Bran Flakes, All-Bran or similar bran-based breakfast cereal
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower or mixed seeds (optional)
  • 75 g (3 oz) ready-to-eat dried apricots, sliced
  • 50 g (3 oz) ready-to-eat dried prunes, chopped
  • milk and honey
  • sliced banana or apple (optional)
  • Place the hazelnuts in a small, dry frying pan and heat gently for 4–5 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, until lightly toasted. Tip into the bowl of a mortar, crush lightly with a pestle and set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, combine the oats, Bran Flakes or All-Bran, seeds and dried fruits. Add the toasted hazelnuts, then divide between 4 bowls and serve immediately with milk and honey and sliced banana or apple, if desired. Alternatively, double the recipe and store for up to a week in an airtight container.
