Bircher Muesli

I’m a muesli girl. I find nothing else will see me through the morning until lunch. This is an excellent alternative to mix up my morning muesli (which is homemade also). It is also perfect when having people over for breakfast or brunch. We served it up at our wedding brunch and it met rave reviews!

This recipe was adapted from Jill Dupleix’s Fresh Apple Muesli. Serves 4

2 cups rolled oats
1 cup water
1/2 cup natural yoghurt – or flavoured if you prefer
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon wheatgerm
2 tablespoons chopped nuts – I prefer almonds
1 banana, mashed
1 granny smith apple, grated
berries or dried fruit – chopped strawberries & blueberries are my favourite additions, but the sky’s the limit here.

The oats are best soaked overnight. There are 2 ways to do this. Soak the oats in the water overnight and in the morning mix through all the other ingredients. OR (this is my preferred method because I like to do everything at once and avoid extra work in the morning!) you can throw all the ingredients together (oats, water, yoghurt, wheatgerm, banana & apple) and add the nuts and extra fruit just before serving. Either way it’s super simple! If you haven’t been organised to prepare it all the night before it doesn’t taste half bad when eaten straight away!
