Bircher muesli

IMG_5173

Bircher Muesli was developed around 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner for his patients and is basically rolled oats that are soaked overnight, mixed with cinnamon, dried fruits and nuts, toasted coconut, berries, grated apples and an optional dollop of yogurt.

I had always wanted to try Bircher muesli before I got my Thermomix but for some reason never got around to it. So when I saw the recipe for Bircher muesli in the Basic Cookbook I just had to give it a go.

What I love the most about it is the fact that you can make it the night before and just add the chopped apple and Greek yoghurt in the morning – which is perfect for those rushed mornings! In my case I woke up early to workout which meant I didn’t have time to eat breakfast at home. So I just packed my breakfast to eat at my desk when I got to work 🙂

 These breakfast bars from the Cooking for me and you cookbook are a great option to grab for a breakfast on-the-go or even as a pre-prepared snack.

Mixed within 10min, baked in 30min these bars are not only easy to make but also provide a great energy boost with essential fatty acids, complex carbs, protein, vitamins, minerals and fibre. And did I add how yummy they are!
