This was delicious and I am making it again today. It is a great way to use up seeds, dried fruit and nuts near the end of their shelf-life, as you can substitute for the ones in the recipe. I added a little more sugar too (40g instead of 25g). So much nicer than shop bought varieties.

So simple to do and keep so there is no excuse for not having a healthy, nutritious breakfast. Also lovely with thick yoghurt as a dessert!!
