Yet I recently discovered Bircher Muesli is quick and easy to make and costs a lot less than the standard, pre-packaged, sugar-laden cereals on the shelf.
My recipe is simply:
2 cups of rolled oats
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1 cup of full-cream milk
2 large unpeeled apples, coarsely grated
the juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
50g of roughly chopped mixed nuts e.g. walnuts, almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, macadamia nuts.
Combine these in a large bowl, cover with Glad Wrap and leave overnight.
To serve, spoon out a generous helping, add a large dollop or two of natural yoghurt and several pieces of “in-season” whole fruit and | or berries to sweeten rather than honey or apple juice as many recipes suggest.
Oats have plenty of fibre to offset the natural fructose in the fruit which in turn contain valuable nutrients as does the yoghurt.
