Bircher Muesli is one of those brilliant, healthy breakfasts that can be made in large batches ahead of time and enjoyed over the course of a week. It is also incredibly versatile, so you can add bits and bobs to suit your family’s taste buds.
For our Bircher Muesli “choose-your-own-adventure” we have used desiccated coconut, hemp seeds, chia seeds and Tummy Thyme apple & blueberry crumble jars (because that’s what we have on hand and it is crazy good!). But feel free to substitute with a tub or two of our fresh-frozen apple & raspberry coconut quinoa or our banana, coconut & cinnamon puree for an insanely, equally as yummy version. Some other additions that work well, include grated apple, stewed fruit (such as apples, pears, apricots or strawberries), greek yoghurt, and dried fruit (ie. stewed prunes are deelish!).
BIRCHER MUESLI RECIPE
Makes 6-8 servings
1.5 cups old fashioned oats
250ml coconut milk, unsweetened
250ml almond milk, unsweetened
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
1.5 cups fresh blueberries (or berry of your choice)
4 x Tummy Thyme fresh jars (approx. 8-10oz)
**or 2 tubs Tummy Thyme apple & raspberry coconut quinoa or banana, coconut & cinnamon (approx. 8-10oz)
**If you do not have any of these products on hand, you can substitute with (approx. 8-10oz) stewed or roasted fruit.
Optional: serve with toasted, flaked almonds, crushed pistachios, maple syrup or a sprinkle of cinnamon
Combine the oats, seeds, coconut, almond and coconut milk in a large glass bowl. Stir well to combine, then cover and place in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours (but preferably overnight). Then remove the bowl from the fridge and stir through the Tummy Thyme fruit puree or your prepared cooked fruit. Scoop a cup of the muesli into a serving bowl, top with fresh blueberries, extra desiccated coconut, some toasted nuts or seeds, a dollop of greek yoghurt and an extra drizzle of your milk-of-choice and serve!
Bircher muesli will last in your fridge for a week!
