You’ve always got time for Bircher Muesli…
Whenever a client tells me they don’t have time for breakfast, I always tell them to prepare a Bircher Muesli. It takes little to no preparation, it’s made the night before and if you set it in a glass container (like Decor Glass Match-ups), you can take it with you when you leave the house.
If you want to Supercharge Your Bircher?
To boost your nutrient intake, I always add fresh nuts/seeds. If you struggle with the taste/can’t be bothered with crushing/chopping your own individual nuts/seeds, mix 2 tablespoons of Kapai Puku Mix into the oats before you soak. This mix is available from Chemist Warehouse (ask a staff member – they are so tricky to find, usually on the bottom shelf of one of the aisles, never where you’d expect them to be) and is a really great balance of the nutrient dense seeds we struggle to incorporate on a busy schedule.
To help minimise sugar intake, this recipe calls for coconut or almond milk instead of orange juice. The apple in the recipe helps sweeten things naturally and you can always add more fruit for a sweet, but nutritious boost.
A simple and effective way to boost your nutrient intake at breakfast with next to no effort.
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 apple, grated
- 2 cups nut milk (almond, cashew, hazelnut) or coconut milk
- 2 generous pinch cinnamon
- 4 tbsp. crushed nuts/seeds or Kapai Puku mix
- 2 dollops coconut yoghurt or full fat natural pot-set yoghurt
- fresh fruit
Coarsely grate the apple.
Mix the grated apple, rolled oats, cinnamon, nut/coconut milk and 1/2 of the nuts/seeds/kapai puku mix in a bowl until well combined.
Split the mixture in half and transfer to 2 x cups/small glass containers for easy transit in the morning. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight.
Top with the remaining nut mixture, coconut or full fat yoghurt and fresh fruit to serve.
