Prep Time: 15 mins (+ at least 20 minutes for the mixture to soak, but ideally overnight)
Bircher muesli was created over a century ago by Swiss doctor, Maximillian Bircher-Benner, as part of a healing therapy for his patients. The key to the Bircher recipe is to soak it overnight. This makes it easier to digest and improves the body’s ability to absorb this nutrient-dense muesli.
Bircher muesli is a wonderful summer style porridge that is insanely yummy to eat, simple to make, and nutritionally extremely powerful. I am a huge fan of oats and am always keen to find dynamic ways of sneaking them into my diet. Oats fill you up and release energy slowly throughout the day preventing spikes in your blood sugar. The combination of the fibre in the oats and the probiotics in yoghurt will also help to promote a healthy digestive system. Combine this with an apple (a day) and you will certainly be keeping the doctor away.
