Classic Bircher Muesli
By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
This is my signature muesli recipe that I love to enjoy as a healthy breakfast. Scented with orange and vanilla with a hint of pomegranate, you’ll be in heaven with every mouthful. I often double the recipe and divide into glass jars so I have enough muesli to take to work for a few days. Enjoy.
1 cup (100 g / 3 ½ oz) organic rolled oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
juice from 2 sweet oranges (375 ml /13 fl oz)
2 tablespoons cultured yoghurt
raw honey to drizzle (optional)
2 coarsely grated red apple such as pink lady or fuji
2 whole oranges, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon chopped pistachio nuts
The night before:
- Combine oats, chia, vanilla and orange juice in a bowl
- Cover and soak overnight in the fridge
In the morning:
- Fold through yoghurt and apple and spoon into glass jars or serving bowls.
- Garnish with pomegranate, pistachio and fresh chopped oranges and enjoy.
Notes and Inspiration
Other fruits are lovely with this muesli – try using pear in place of apple and garnish with fresh ripe figs and roasted walnuts.
Pump up the protein and add 1 tablespoon of Healthy Chef Protein into the orange juice before soaking the oats.
