Avocado Bircher

I came across this recipe from Honestly Healthy and had never thought about adding avocado to oats.  I made this last night and really enjoyed it this morning. The avocado adds a lovely smooth texture to the oats.  The original recipe uses pomegranate seeds at the end before serving – I didn’t have any so substituted some dried cranberries and goji seeds instead.  Definitely a great way to have avocado for breakfast.

See the original recipe here

  • Any seeds or fruit – pomegranate, dried cranberries, goji berries – something with a slightly sharp taste is a nice complement to the dish

  • Chop the avocado into smallish chunks – squeeze the lemon juice over the top.
  • Put the oats in a bowl and add the milk, cinnamon, sesame seeds, apple and avocado.
