Classic Bircher

classic bircher

Bircher muesli has gained in popularity in the UK in recent years but if you're not familiar with it, it's essentially a soaked muesli as opposed to the dry boxed versions of muesli you've probably come across. It was originally developed around 1900 by Swiss physician, Dr Maximilian Bircher- Brenner for his patients-  soaking the oats before consuming makes it gentler on digestion. Another benefit of soaking the oats overnight is that it's a breakfast which requires very little preparation in the morning and it keeps well in the fridge for a few days so you can have individual portions of nourishing deliciousness prepped in advance!

Three great health benefits: beneficial for heart health, promotes healthy skin, good source of fibre

Serves 4

4 apples
200g gluten free oats
1 tsp ground cinnamon
4 tbsp natural coconut yoghurt
1/2 apple, grated (I like Granny Smith)
5 tsp raisins

1) Feed the 4 apples through a juicer. This should yield approx 400ml apple juice.
2) In a bowl, mix together the oats and apple juice. Divide into four servings, cover and refrigerate overnight.
3) In the morning, when you're ready to enjoy, add the cinnamon (divided equally between the portions) and stir to combine. Top with the yoghurt, grated apple and raisins (again, divided equally).
