I didn’t even know what bircher muesli was all about for quite some time. That was until I tried it on a recent trip to Brown Sugar Cafe…. it was ❤ at first bite.
So, in an attempt to save money, I made a delicious Sunday breakfast at home, with freshly made coffee from our coffee machine. It was so damn good, I made it again the weekend after!
Traditionally with bircher muesli recipes, you need to soak the oats overnight in juice. This recipe only requires you to soak the oats for 30 minutes… so if you are like me and forget to soak your oats the night before…. wake up -> soak your oats -> relieve your bladder -> crawl back into bed until you’re ready for breakfast!
Complete with natural yoghurt, crunchy flaked almonds, the delicious sweetness of honey, and the shear awesomeness that is grated apple… what more could you want for breakfast?!
Given that I love pretty much anything with apple in it, even down to shampoo; I really really loved this recipe. I could happily eat it everyday for breakfast. The most fiddly part of the whole dish is having to grate an apple. But if you can get over that, you’ll have yourself a tasty treat!
1 1/2 cups (150g / 5 1/4 oz) rolled oats
1 cup (250ml / 8 fl oz) apple juice, warmed
2 green apples, grated
1 cup (250g / 8 oz) thick natural yoghurt
1/2 cup silvered almonds
honey, to serve
1. Place the oats and apple juice in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and allow to stand for 30 minutes or until the oats are softened.
2. Stir in the grated apple.
3. To serve, divide the yoghurt between 4 serving glasses, top with the oat mixture, almonds and honey.
