Mix all the flakes together and stir in the agave syrup. Bake for 45 mins at 200C. Remove and add in some chopped raw almonds and walnuts. Throw in some raisins and chopped apricots/figs. Then add 1/2 cup chopped berries and some banana (optional), 1 teaspoon seed mix, 1 teaspoon chopped almonds and walnuts and 1 cup rice/soy/nut milk (optional).

I just moved back to Singapore, and I have to say that quinoa, buckwheat and agave nectar aren't that widely available in Singapore. I was just wondering where you usually get your stuff?

hello kayla,

Staples usually from wholesale center at the shops above the hawker center at waterloo street. But Quinoa, I got it from NTUC organic section. Buckwheat from Yue Hwa in Chinatown. I don't use agave nectar, but you can get it from organic / health food shops.
