Neil’s Bircher Muesli. This is my easy, tasty version of the classic overnight oats recipe providing the perfect relaxing and healthy start to the day!
This is my take on that classic Swiss recipe, Bircher Muesli.
I love the thought that when I wake up in the morning this delicious breakfast is already waiting for me in the fridge.
All that it requires prior to having my spoon dig into it is some freshly chopped fruit!
At the weekends Bircher Muesli is my savour!
You see I like to spend my weekends cooking and baking, so it helps to have a healthy breakfast pre-made in the fridge so that I can maximise my time cooking other things for the week ahead, like our homemade soups.
There’s just so much to say that is good about this Bircher Muesli.
For example it provides nearly one quarter of your daily recommended dietary fibre and 30% of the protein you need.
Once you’ve topped your bowl with fruits and berries you’re well on the way towards your recommended 5 a day portions of fruits and veggies too!
Your Bircher Mueli is easily transportable too.
It’s ideal as a pre-made breakfast straight after your gym workout, or just if you want to take it to work if you’re not an early breakfast person.
So put quite simply Bircher Mueli is one great quick, healthy, versatile and filling meal.
And I mean MEAL because you really might (after tasting this amazing recipe) want to eat this for every meal!
- 50 g porridge Oats
- 2 apples (I use Golden Delicious), medium sized. 1 thinly sliced and 1 finely grated
- 30 g sultanas
- 100 ml skimmed milk
- 150 ml no fat Greek yogurt
- 75 ml apple juice , unsweetened, sugar free and not from concentrate
- 20 g flaked almonds
- 1 tsp runny honey
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
Mix everything together well in a medium sized bowl / casserole dish; cover and put in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, when ready to serve, divide the muesli between two cereal bowls and top with your favourite fresh berries and slices of banana.
