Tip

Just the thing to lift your spirits
Make a big batch using your favourite fruit and nuts, store in an airtight container and help yourself whenever you need a boost.

Method

  1. Place the butter, honey and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, then melt over a medium heat. Tip the rolled oats, mixed nuts, coconut and vanilla into a large bowl, then pour over the melted butter mixture and stir until everything is well coated.

  2. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Lightly grease a large baking tray with butter. Tip the muesli mixture onto the tray and spread out until evenly covered. Bake in the oven for 10 mins, then use a spoon to carefully toss the mixture around. Take special care to get into the corners as these may be starting to brown. Cook for 5-10 mins more until the mixture turns a light golden brown. Now mix through the dried fruits and ginger, if using. Leave to cool. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

  3. To serve, spoon the yogurt into 4 serving bowls. Peel the mango and, cutting around the stone, thinly slice. Put into bowls along with the blueberries, then scatter over the crunchy muesli.
