I have been inspired by one of my clients that was looking for a quick and easy recipe for her busy mornings. Making bircher muesli the day before was an option :) I have replaced the apple juice by the fresh juice of 4 little oranges. I didn't add sugars.
The sweetness comes from the cinnamon and cardamon spices I bought yesterday! And this morning I have added fresh blueberries, strawberries, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds. And not only it looks nice on my table this morning but it is delicious!!
Oats, spices and seeds are coming from my favorite shop in Balmain, the Source bulk food.
The normal and recommended portion size is usually 30g of uncooked oats per person.
The original recipe, Bircher Muesli, was created over a century ago by Swiss doctor, Maximillian Bircher-Benner, as part of a healing therapy for his patients. His recommendation was to soak the muesli overnight to achieve a chewier consistency and therefore improve the digestion too.
200g rolled oats
180g yoghurt (cow or goat)
2 small Granny Smith apples (200g)
Juice of 4 oranges (220ml)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamon
Handful of strawberries and blueberries
2 tbsp seeds of your choice (pumpkin, sesame, sunflowers…)
Grate the apple and press the oranges.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats with the yoghurt and orange juice and then add the cinnamon and cardamon.
Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour or for best results overnight.
Serve with the strawberries, blueberries, and seeds on top. You can also add more yoghurt if too dried.
You can replace the blueberries and strawberries with any fruits you like.
