Coconut bircher

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

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.
