Bircher muesli is naturally sweet and tastes delicious. It’s also great for your energy levels as it has a low glycaemic index (keeps you going for longer), is high in soluble fibre (helps to reduce cholesterol) and is packed with vitamins and minerals.
Bircher Muesli was originally created by a Swiss doctor, Dr.Bircher-Benner, who wanted to create a highly nutritious breakfast for his patients. Soaked over night, the ingredients become much more easy to digest which helps to increase nutrient absorption.
- 1 large apple - 1/2 grated & 1/2 thinly sliced (latter is optional)
- 3 chopped dried apricots
- 40g (~1/2 cup) oats
- 160ml (~2/3 cup) milk - I use skimmed, soya or almond milk
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger or cinnamon
- Optional: honey, fresh fruit, 0% fat Greek yoghurt
