I grew up on bircher muesli, my healthy mum was ahead with her nutritional know how and made 99% of our food from scratch. For those of you that are not familiar with this soaked and activated breakfast, it was 'invented' by a Swiss man in the early 1900's who was looking for health. Soaking overnight makes the food more alive, nutritious and easier to digest. This a very healthy and nutritious breakfast for the warmed months.
You can pretty much add anything to the oats i.e. fruit, nuts and seeds of your choice.
Below is my recipe that I like;
- Organic rolled oats
- Sunflower seeds
- Chia seeds
Soak all this overnight in water. Quantities are up to you.
Then add in the morning;
- Grated apple
- Mashed banana
- Any other fruit of your choice i.e. berries go well
- Coconut or dairy yoghurt
- Almond or coconut milk or water
- Top with toasted coconut flakes
