A dietitian’s take on the bircher muesli, we’ve packed ours with:

  • Healthy fats from a variety of nuts and seeds
  • Low GI carbohydrate from whole grain rolled oats
  • Lots of fibre, vitamins and minerals from fresh and dried fruits
  • No bulking agents, fillers, thickeners or added sugar! Just fresh, whole foods

Ingredients

For the bircher muesli dry mix

  • 750g whole rolled oats (not quick oats)
  • 1 cup raw or dry roasted nuts – we used almonds, pecans and macadamias. Roughly chop into chunky pieces
  • 1 cup seeds – we used pepitas, flaxseeds and sesame seeds
  • 1 cup dried fruit – we used goji berries, cranberries and whole banana’s
  • 4 tbs chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut

 

For the bircher muesli bowls

  • 200g of the dry mixture
  • 1 green apple – grated
  • 2 cups of liquid – water, milk, almond or coconut milk (we used almond milk)
  • 500g natural Greek yoghurt (we use Chobani 0.5% fat)
  • 250g strawberries
  • 125g blueberries

Method

To make the bircher muesli dry mix

  1. Throw all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a spoon to combine
  2. Store in a large, airtight container until needed.

This makes a huge batch of about 25 individual serves  (50g/serve)
