Quick, easy to make and far healthier than the supermarket options, our basic muesli is a great way to break your fast. Although muesli is often seen as a healthy breakfast option, the big brand favourites are often laden with sugar from dried fruits and chocolate chips. Our version, created by The Fast 800 in-house nutritionist, is just as delicious, cheaper and takes just 8 minutes to make.
Serve with Greek yogurt and berries for a fresh, easy and quick start to your day. To save time, make several batches and measure out the evening before for an easy, on-the-go breakfast.

- 30 g whole rolled oats
- 5 g shredded coconut
- 10 g almonds, chopped
- 10 g pumpkin seeds
- 5 g chia seeds
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 150 ml unsweetened almond milk
- 50 g plain full fat greek yoghurt
- 1 passionfruit, halved (see Notes for alternatives)
- Mix all dry ingredients together and top with fruit, yogurt and milk.
- You could also toast this muesli – mix dry ingredients on a baking tray and bake in a 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4 oven for 10-15 minutes until golden, stirring regularly.
- Switch your fruit for anything seasonal – try berries or fresh apple. On fasting days especially, when trying to keep blood sugars low and stable, choose low sugar fruits like berries, apples, pears, passionfruit and citrus. On non-fasting days, stone fruits and bananas are fine but steer clear of sweet tropical fruits like mango, melons and pineapple as they will spike your blood sugars.
- Batch prepare the dry mix and store in an airtight container in the pantry.
- In general, oats are not considered gluten-free. However, evidence does show that uncontaminated oats are well tolerated by most people with coeliac disease. Please choose your oats carefully if you would like to make this recipe gluten-free.
