I found this recipe in the Australian Womens Weekly. I thought it sounded great as it contains ingredients I always have on hand. I even made this for my toddler DD (without the nuts) and she gobbled it up. It's really simple & tasty.
- 2 cups oats
- 2 cups orange juice
- 1 apple, grated
- 1 banana, mashed
- 1⁄4 cup roasted hazelnuts, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup low-fat yogurt
- cinnamon (optional)
- Combine oats & orange juice & let refrigerate overnight.
- Just before serving add remaining ingredients.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon to serve if you like.
I scaled this down to 2 servings because I'm the only oatmeal eater in my house. I used plain yogurt and some honey and used almonds instead of hazelnuts. I didn't like it raw so I cooked it in the microwave. It was good then, but maybe my oranges were too tart. Next time I might dilute the oj a little. Made for Bevy Tag, Oct '08.
I wasn't very keen on the floury texture raw oats so I did as suggested below and cooked it for 5 minutes. It tasted really good then - the orange flavour definitely gives it an unusual tang!
Very nice fruity muesli! I used peach soy yogurt and loved the addition of cinnamon. I'm not quite accustomed to such orangey muesli, but I certainly still enjoyed it! (For larger, muesli-devouring appetites such as my own, I would call this 4 servings.) Thanks for posting!
