Bircher muesli is one of those fabulous breakfasts that you can throw together the night before and then its there for you to grab as you race out the door in the morning. I am sometimes rushing off and just pop my jar of bircher in my bag to enjoy when I get to work. Otherwise, I’ll happily eat it at home after a run, thankful for a relaxing morning with no breakfast mess!
I have tried many different versions of bircher but this would have to be my favourite by far. I found that if I used nut milk or yoghurt the result was rather dense whereas the coconut water gives a lovely light texture and refreshing flavour.
I have used rolled oats but they could easily be swapped for quinoa flakes. The toppings are really whatever you fancy on the day and I like to change them up to keep it exciting. Coconut yoghurt or greek yoghurt is always nice as well as some crunchy nuts and something sweet. Fresh fruit is also a delicious addition.
Coconut bircher muesli
1 C rolled oats
2 T chia seeds
1/2 C desiccated coconut
1 small granny smith apple, grated
2 t cinnamon
1 1/2 C coconut water
2 T coconut yoghurt
1 T raw almonds, chopped
1 T goji berries
1 t bee pollen
Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl and give a quick stir. Add the apple and coconut water and combine well. Cover, place in the fridge and let set overnight.
In the morning take out the bircher, give and stir and then serve your desired amount. Top with coconut yoghurt, almonds, goji berries and bee pollen.
