Raspberry Almond Muesli

This super easy breakfast dish has become one of my husband's favorites.  You just need to remember to start it the night before you want to serve it for breakfast.

1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1 pint fresh raspberries
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons shredded coconut
3 tablespoons sliced or slivered almonds
1 cup buttermilk (I think yogurt would also work OK)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
blueberries or blackberries for garnish (optional--I didn't use)

Combine oats and flax.  Mash 1 cup of the raspberries with the honey.  Set aside remaining berries for garnish.

Toast coconut and almonds in skillet and add to the oat mixture.  You can reserve 1 tablespoon of the nuts for topping the cereal if you like.  I have made the dish without toasting the nuts and it is still good. 

Add buttermilk and vanilla to the oats.  Add raspberry mixture and stir to combine.  Refrigerate for 4-12 hours.  Serve topped with remaining berries.
