I have blogged about bircher muesli before but I simply have to blog about it again. Now there's not much more I want to say about it other than that I must have made at least 10kg of it over the last month as the family and their guests have been wild about it. It must be the recipe which has been most requested so far. Now if that's not a good enough reason to try it, then what is?
If you want to read what I wrote about it before, click here.
The only real deviation to the ingredients in the recipe below is that I have been adding lots of cinnamon rather than vanilla and recently I have been making fresh pressed apple juice in the juicer rather than using store bought juice.
I think I may just pop over the to fridge and get myself a bowl right now!
Makes about 5 cups and lasts for 2 – 3 days in the fridge
2 cups of oats (raw rolled oats is the best)
2 - 3 cups of fruit juice (I like to use apple or berry juice)
½ - 1 cup of coconut milk or yogurt
1 pinch of salt
1 cup of chopped nuts of choice
½ cup of omega mix seeds (sunflower, sesame, lin, flax and pumpkin seed)
1 tsp of vanilla essence or equivalent vanilla extract
1 cup of fresh (or frozen) berries of choice
1 cup of grated apple or pear
In a sealable container combine all ingredients except the fruit and allow to soak for a few hours or overnight. Add extra apple juice or water if you feel the mixture is getting too dry at any point.
Stir for a bit to build up a creamy texture, then add the grated fruit and berries and combine lightly.
Can keep for a few days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container.
