  • cup unsweetened flaked coconut

  • Stir together the oats, pecans, cherries, coconut, flax, cinnamon and a big pinch of salt. Stir in the grated apple. In a smaller bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the milk, yogurt, juice and vanilla. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
