Bircher Muesli - a delicious and healthy start to your day

December 29, 2017

Bircher Muesli is a delicious basic mix of apple juice, milk, grated apple and oatmeal.  You can customise it though - add your favourite unflavoured yogurt - coconut, Greek, strained, low-fat or full-fat.  Add plain rolled oats.  I do add chia seeds to mine and I think that any kind of seeds are an acceptable addition.  You can leave it to soak overnight if you prefer a softer texture, but it's not necessary.
