Cafe-Style Bircher Muesli

IMG_1259I recently spent a week travelling around Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road. If you haven’t visited this part of the world yet, it is definitely a region to add to your bucket list! While holidaying, we were eating out for most meals. On almost every breakfast menu we came across, we spotted the ever-faithful Bircher Muesli. I loved seeing the different flavour combinations added, and it inspired me to create a simple, cafe-style Bircher to quickly whip up at home. Keep reading for one of the easiest, and most delicious, Birchers you’ll find (pictured).

Ingredients (2 servings):

  • 1 cup oats (I used quick oats)
  • 1 cup almond milk (or other milk variety)
  • 1 green apple, grated
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts & seeds (I used almonds, walnuts and pepitas)
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Handful chopped dates and/or dried apricots
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
  • To serve: banana, yoghurt, shredded coconut, nuts, honey, etc.

 

Method:Β 

  1. In a bowl, combine oats, apple, nuts/seeds, coconut, cinnamon, chia seeds and dried dates/apricots.
  2. Stir in the almond milk until a wet consistency is formed.
  3. Cover and place in the fridge overnight (alternatively, at least 1 hour).
  4. When serving, add more almond milk or yoghurt if the consistency is a bit firm.Β  Add desired toppings and enjoy πŸ™‚
  5. Lasts up to 4-5 days. I made a large batch and had ready-to-go breakfasts each day.

 

Baker’s Tips:Β 

  • Depending on the season, experiment with different toppings. Warm, poached fruit such as apricots, pears or peaches is a tasty addition.
  • Mix up the spices. I love cinnamon, so like to stick to just that. However, you could experiment with cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. to taste.
