One thing I order if I go out for brekkie or brunch is Bircher Muesli. It’s really tasty with the added bonuses of being healthy and filling. Recently, in my attempt at being a little more healthy, I’ve been making a batch of Bircher Muesli once or twice a week; each batch enough for a few mornings.
1 apple, unpeeled, grated
1 cup (90g) rolled oats
1/2 cup (125ml) apple juice
1/2 cup (130g) fat-free natural yoghurt, plus extra to serve
1/4 cup (25g) flaked almonds
1/4 cup (25g) sultanas
1 tablespoon of honey
Blueberries, to serve
Step 1 – Mix grated apple, oats, apple juice, sultanas, almonds and yoghurt in a bowl until well combined. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight (I prefer overnight as the sultanas get nice & plump!).
Step 2 – Stir half 1/2 cup of yoghurt if the muesli has been soaking overnight. If the muesli has been soaking for 1 hour, add a little extra yoghurt only as desired. Top with blueberries (and squeeze of honey of desired) to serve.
There are SO many variations and additions you can make to this recipie. Here are some more ideas on what you could add;
