3/4 cup (185 ml) whole oat kernels,
coarsely ground
Water to just cover oats
3 Tbsp (45 ml) yogurt or kefir
1 Tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice
1 Tbsp (15 ml) honey
1 Tbsp (15 ml) sunflower seeds or finely chopped almonds
2 large apples, washed
1/2 cup (125 ml) fruit or seasonal berries
1/4 tsp (1 ml) ground cinnamon

Mix oats and water thoroughly and let sit over night. Next morning, add all other ingredients, coring and grating the apples at the end to avoid oxidation. Mix well and serve at once.

Freshly grind whole oat kernels in a grain mill or for a short time in an electric coffee mill. Serves four.
