500 g oats (Mix of medium and jumbo)
500 g buckwheat
500 g barley Flakes
250 g wheatgerm
200 g raisins/ sultanas
400 g dried figs
150 g unsulphured apricot, chopped
100 g hulled hemp seeds
300 g sunflower seeds
200 g sesame seeds, toasted
250 g pumpkin seeds
150 g linseed
Milk (soya or goats) half and half or water.

I make a huge jar of this and it varies every time I make it up. I usually use only water, (adding milk when it’s cooked.) and I use 1/3 of the mix to 1 cup (I keep a cup measure in the jar.) of water. It’s best soaked over night and I try and remember to do this just before heading to bed.

I place it over a gentle heat whilst I get ready in the morning, stirring it occasionally for about 5 minutes.

Served with a drizzle of milk and a teaspoon of honey (usually Manuka) this really does keep me going til mid morning before hunger pangs start to nag.
