Maggie's Recipe for LifeIf you’re a nut lover you’re in luck here, as long as you prepare this muesli the night before. The combination of nuts, seeds and apple gives a great mix of sweetness and acidity, and the dried pear halves I’ve already waxed lyrical about are just great eating. You might think I’m the nut but I always feel quite virtuous when I’ve been organised enough to make this for the next day’s breakfast.

  • Yield: 4 Servings


  • 65 g sunflower seeds
  • 30 g sunflower seeds
  • 60 g macadamia nuts
  • 75 g blanched almonds
  • 2 dried Australian pear halves
  • 30 g sultanas
  • 1 Pink Lady apple
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ cup (125 ml) apple juice or verjuice
  • ½ cup (140 g) natural probiotic yoghurt, plus extra to serve
How to Make It
  1. Place the seeds and nuts in separate bowls, cover with cold water and stand overnight. If the pear halves are plump, there’s no need to soak them.
  2. The following day, drain all the soaked ingredients and rinse through a fine sieve. Transfer to a blender. Add the dried fruit, apple, lemon zest and juices and blend on high until smooth – you may need to add a little water. Stir in the yoghurt.
  3. To serve, divide among 4 bowls and top with extra yoghurt, if using.
