So Bircher Muesli first came into my life when I worked in Daintree Rainforest in an upmarket resort back in 2007, it was an amazing breakfast spread they put on, but this was my favourite part. The dish itself dates back to around 1900, and originates from Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner for his sanatorium patients, where a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables was an essential part of therapy.
It's basically overnight oats, yes, but it's much more exciting and it's super duper customisable. Don't like raisins? Fine, sub it for any dried fruit. Don't like Almond Mylk? Sub it for Greek Yogurt. This is the first of many versions to try.
For the Oats
200g Organic Rolled Oats (gluten free works fine too)
200ml Apple Juice
200ml Almond Mylk
2 Small Apples, whole, grated/chopped like matchsticks
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 Tbsp Sesame/Pumpkin Seeds
1 Tbsp Hazelnuts
Half an apple, sliced
1 Tbsp Natural Greek Yogurt
1 Tsp Goji Berries
1 Tsp Honey
Everything for the oats goes in a large bowl or lunchbox - mix well. Cover and store in the fridge overnight and serve the following morning. This is a birllian toption for Christmas morning, it's filling, nutritious, and can be easily decorated for a festive feel. Enjoy!
