Carol’s Bircher Muesli With a Trail Mix Twist

Did you know it is National Trail Mix day on the 31st of August?

To honour this auspicious occasion I have created my own breakfast parfait that incorporates a pepita  and hazelnut trail mix (my own special combination), pear, Greek yoghurt and rolled oats.

I have offered this to a few of my house guests and got a resounding thumbs up!  I will be regularly including this on our breakfast menu.
