Berry Bircher Muesli

Perfect for those get-out-of-bed and go sort of people. Prepare this muesli the night before (5 minutes!) and you’ll wake up to a fast, healthy, convenient breakfast. This recipe is super versatile – swap for different seeds, nuts and fruit as desired.

This breakfast is not only delicious, but is a nutritious choice. It has high-fibre oats to fill you (a low-GI carbohydrate), protein from milk and yoghurt, nuts and seeds for healthy fats and 1-2 serves of fruit for your day!

Pictured is my Bircher Breakfast this morning to start my day. Enjoy!

Serves: 4 people
Time: 5-10 minutes prepping, overnight soaking

Ingredients

2 cups rolled oats
1 cup milk (cow’s or alternative)
1-2 apples, grated
1.5 cups thawed frozen berries
¼ cup coconut flakes
1 cup plain yoghurt
¼ cup raw sunflower seeds
¼ cup sliced or whole almonds

Method

  1. At night – In a medium sized mixing bowl, stir together the oats, milk, grated apple and flaked/shredded coconut. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill overnight to allow oats to soften and absorb the milk.
  2. Put 1.5 cups of frozen berries into a small bowl, and place in the fridge to thaw
  3. The next morning – Add the yoghurt, sunflower seeds and the almonds. Mix well.
  4. Either sprinkle on top, or fold into the mixture the thawed out berries. Add any remaining juice from the bowl.

Happy Eating!
