Bircher Muesli was developed around 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner for his patients and is still a very popular breakfast throughout Switzerland and Germany. The original recipe called for much more fresh fruit than grain and soaked the raw oats overnight since they took some time to soften.
You can make your own delicious version using any one of the Nina’s Muesli range (depending on whether you do not want raisins or nuts). I like using the Nina’s Low GI Muesli as it has the added benefit of extra fibre!
You will need the following:
1 cup (250g) Nina’s Low GI Muesli
250ml Freshly squeezed apple juice
Dollop of natural yoghurt
1 Grated apple (or any fresh fruit of your choice)
Soak the muesli overnight in the apple juice (you can leave it in the fridge if you’d like it colder on a hot summer’s day). Add a dollop of delicious fresh yogurt topped with the grated apple. Enjoy!!
