Vegan Bircher Muesli
Together with overnight oats, Bircher muesli is one of the most popular breakfast dishes on Instagram. It’s funny that Bircher muesli gained popularity in the last few years, as the recipe is over 100 years old!
Swiss doctor Maximilian Bircher-Benner invented this recipe to make his patients eat more healthy. Doctor Bircher-Benner already knew in 1900 that a combination of a nutritious diet and exercise would make his patients feel less ill.
You make Bircher Muesli the night before and leave it in the fridge. This makes it a great breakfast for if you have to get up early or have limited time in the morning.
I made a vegan recipe inspired by the book FitChef Turbo. Instead of condensed milk as in dr Bircher-Benners recipe, FitChef uses skimmed milk and I’m using a plant based ‘milk’ to make this Bircher muesli vegan.
This recipe contains 332 kcal per person, 48 grams of carbs and 17 grams of protein.
Grate the apple in a bowl and mix it with the lemon juice. Add the oats, yogurt and milk and mix well. Put the mixture in a weck jar and close it. Put it in the fridge overnight.
Cover it with the flaxseed before serving.
I enjoyed my Bircher muesli with forest fruit. You can top it with anything you’d like, dried fruit is also a nice option!
