Bircher Muesli

Originally created in Switzerland, Bircher was introduced to me in England. Jon was always on about it as a tasty snack or breakfast. I would see it in a lot of shops selling ready-made foods. Super easy to make, you basically combine yogurt, oats and your choice of additives. Since Jon and I are on a detox at the moment, we can’t have any added sugar, fruit or dried fruit (we also used only plain Greek yogurt because of the cane sugar in the raspberry kind). There are so many ways you could make this recipe including using plain Greek yogurt alone and adding a tsp of honey or maple syrup for sweetness. Additions like nuts, fruit, vanilla extract etc can all be used jut be mindful of fat and sugar content 🙂 We chose to go with a pumpkin, sunflower, hemp seed medley with some coconut. I had some This stuff is tasty as heck! Served cold in the morning or as a snack, it provides a nice bit of protein, carbs, fibre and good fats. Eat up guys!
