Perfect Bircher Muesli

Hello hungry peoples,

I have reached an age where certain things are non-negotiable – have I slept for 8 hours, have I done some exercise, have I had a serve of fruit between each meal, have I eaten any nuts, have I had yoghurt today…….the list goes on and on and it is exhausting even writing it. Of course if I don’t follow through my body falls apart and I become a non-functioning blob.

My favourite thing about bircher muesli is the convenience. It is the ultimate cheat as it contains all the good stuff with minimal effort and gets your day started on a good path. You can just make a batch at the start of the week and you are set. It also a pretty flexible. Any liquid will do, I have even made it with a batch of leftover chai tea.

My base recipe is pretty traditional, although I do like to add more wet ingredients than usual as it makes the muesli creamier. I also like to add heaps of different nuts as I think it does amazing things to the texture and the flavour. If you have any extra fruit feel free to throw it in. There are no rules….make it your own. Let’s get into it!
