Nourishing Bircher Muesli

Are you looking for a light and nourishing Spring breakfast? Then why not make a bowl of my delicious Bircher Muesli…..

As a practicing Health Coach, I am a huge advocate for eating fresh, seasonal produce. Eating seasonally, not only nurtures our bodies with wholesome foods, but we are supporting local farmers and their produce. This bircher muesli is one of my favourite Spring recipes, it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and  is a lighter breakfast alternative to the grounding porridge we’ve eaten throughout Winter. I’ve made this recipe using beautiful seasonal fruits such as Lady William apples, and as the weather continues to warm up you can top your bircher with your favourite berries as they come into season.

What you’ll need – serves 2
  • 1 cup organic oats*
  • 1 lady william apple, grated
  • 2 tsp. goji berries
  • 1 tbl. chia seeds
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbl. mixed raw nuts finely chopped
  • 2 tbl. organic yoghurt*
  • 1 tbl. mixed raw nuts finely chopped
  • 2 tbl. organic yoghurt
What you’ll need to do:

In a medium sized bowl, combine the oats, grated apple, goji berries, chia seeds, cinnamon and chopped nuts and stir until combined.

Stir through the yoghurt and add enough almond milk to make a the bircher into a paste like consistency. You want to add a little more milk than normal as this will be soaked up overnight. Place the bircher into a airtight container (you can squeeze a little lemon on top to stop the apple from going brown if you like) and leave in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, place your bircher into a bowl or container to tote to work topping with some sliced fruit, flaked coconut, goji berries, bee pollen….whatever takes your fancy!

*I’ve made this recipe with oats, but you could replace this with the same quantity of cooked quinoa to make a gluten free version. Equally if you are dairy free, you can replace the yoghurt with some coconut or almond yoghurt.
