This recipe is truly one of my favourite breakfasts (it’s also great as a snack)! I love the crispy freshness of the raw fruit/veg, the crunchiness of the seeds, nuts and coconut, and the creaminess of the yoghurt. Best of all, you only have to make up the crunch mix once and you get 5 to 10 meals out of that. All you have to do is grate 1 apple and 1 small carrot, throw a few tablespoons of the crunch mix and a tablespoon or two of yoghurt and a handful of berries and you’re good to go. Couldn’t be simpler than that!
