Meanwhile ask your helpers to scatter the oats, seeds, nuts and fruit over a large, lined baking tray.

HINTS & TIPS
Make a large batch and keep in the cupboard for a couple of weeks for a quick and easy breakfast or snack. Experiment with adding different yogurts and fruits!
'Lighten up' this is a great breakfast for a busy day! Use 1/2 the amount of runny honey. Adding cinnamon adds a warm sweet taste. Coconut oil is high in saturated fats something that should be eaten less often. Reducing the amount by half can help lighten up this recipe.
