Strawberries are one of the most powerful foods -they're not only high in Vitamin C, but they also contain antioxidants which are said to reduce cholesterol.


2 tablespoons clear honey 

50 g (2 oz.) porridge oats 

50 g (2 oz.) flaked almonds 

25 g (1 oz.) desiccated coconut 

250 g (9 oz.) strawberries

Q tablespoon caster sugar 

juice of ½ a lemon 

1 x 500-g (17-fl oz.) pot natural yoghurt


For a great way to start off any brunch, this takes some beating. These crisp coconut honey oats keep well if stored in an airtight jar until needed, although, I have to admit that they never last long in my house because they are rather moreish and make a good secret kitchen nibble! 

If you can't find strawberries, use other berries or soft dried apricots instead. 

Pour the honey into a frying pan. Add the oats, flaked almonds and coconut. Cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly until golden (watch the pan carefully as the mixture can easily catch and burn if left unattended). Remove from the heat and tip on to a plate lined with baking parchment to get crisp.
