Winter Porridge

I was searching for inspiration on new breakfast ideas for a healthy winter breakfast and after looking at some different muesli recipes decided to try making my own at home. As a result of not wanting muesli with cold milk one morning I decided to heat it up in the microwave and voila came up with this.

Winter Porridge
Servings: 10, Serving size: 40g, Calories: 150 Calories per serve (without milk)

250g Unstabilised oats
50g Bran
30g Pumpkin/Pepita seeds
50g Craisins (Dried Cranberries, see pic below)
25g Sultanas
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together and store in an air tight container. To make it into a porridge I usually measure out 40g muesli with 1/2 cup skinny milk and leave it overnight to soak and then microwave it in the morning for about 1-1.5minutes it will depend on your microwave. It sometimes needs a little dash of milk.

Another alternative is to just soak the muesli overnight in milk or yoghurt or a combination and have it as a bircher or you could just use it as a muesli. In any case it is very versatile and healthy to have on hand.
