A simple but super easy breakfast for kids packed with oats, seeds, yogurt and fruit. Spend just 3 minutes prepping this tonight and tomorrow you’ll wake up to this delicious breakfast perfect for Spring and Summer!
Now that Spring is finally here and we’ve been enjoying some glorious weather, I’ve been trying to change up our usual breakfast offerings. Porridge is a big favourite of mine during the winter but as it starts to warm up I love nothing more than a big bowl of overnight oats or bircher muesli in the mornings!
This recipe is so simple to make. It takes just three minutes of easy preparation the night before by adding all the ingredients to a bowl, giving it a good mix and then popping in the fridge. Come the morning you have a delicious breakfast ready to eat straight away. You can even make it in a jar or tupperwear box and pop it in your bag to have at work or on the go!
The grated apple, along with a small amount of honey gives a lovely sweetness to this breakfast, making it ideal for kids aswell as adults. I used raspberries to flavour my muesli even more, but strawberries and blueberries would work just as well.
I prefer to use frozen berries in this recipe. I dunk them in hot water quickly to start the defrosting process. This means they are really soft and the juices run through all the other ingredients. But you could of course use fresh berries instead.
My recipe uses cows yogurt and milk but you can also use non-dairy milk and it tastes just as good!

- 50g / 1.5 cups rolled oats
- 100g / 0.5 cup plain yogurt
- 120ml / 0.5 cup milk
- 1 apple, grated
- 1 tbsp mixed seeds
- ½ tbsp honey
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 100g / 3.5oz frozen raspberries
- Add all the ingredients except the frozen raspberries to a large bowl and mix well.
- Add the frozen raspberries to a bowl or jug and cover with hot water. Leave for just 1 to 2 minutes before draining. The idea is to begin the defrosting process but they don't have to be completely defrosted.
- Stir the raspberries through with the rest of the ingredients, cover the bowl with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or for a minimum of 3 hours.
