Banana-Walnut Breakfast Muesli


70g/2.5oz muesli mix (rolled oats, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds)
80g/2.75oz pears, grated through a cheese grater
1 tbsp. chia seeds
250ml/8.5fl oz plain yoghurt
15ml/0.5fl oz maple syrup
150g/5.25oz banana, sliced
30g/1oz walnuts, toasted


Combine muesli mix, grated pears, chia seeds, yoghurt, and maple syrup in a bowl. Chill for at least 4 hours.
Transfer into serving bowls and top with bananas and walnuts.


What a way to start your day, a healthy bowl of nature’s fruit and nut bounty. Bananas aren’t only full of vitamins and minerals but numerous bioactive compounds that have antioxidant qualities. Walnuts contain phytonutrients that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, research has shown that most of the foods we usually eat do not contain some of these phytonutrients. An unusual form of Vitamin E is found in walnuts and studies have found it provides heart protection. Who would have thought that the walnut was so unique!
