I find Bircher muesli much easier to digest in the morning than regular muesli as soaking the oats seems to reduce greatly the sensation of them swelling and expanding inside one’s stomach. The oats absorb almost all of the initial liquid and the final consistency is that of a very thick porridge.
|200g||porridge oats (gluten-free, if required)|
|80g||dried figs, roughly chopped|
|40g||toasted coconut chips (unsweetened)|
|1 tbsp||wheat germ|
|1 tbsp||golden linseed|
|2 tbsp||blanched hazelnuts|
|2 tbsp||pumpkin seeds|
|2 tbsp||walnut halves|
|A small pinch||of salt|
|1 tsp||ground cinnamon|
|4||medium apples (Cox’s or Braeburn are nice and tangy for this), skin on, grated|
|200ml||Greek yoghurt or cream|
Combine all the ingredients and leave in the fridge for at least 6 hours.
