Soaking oats overnight in lemon juice activates the enzymes contained within them, this helps to break down the oat, making it easier for our body to digest and absorb, as well as releasing important nutrients.
The “invention” of muesli is credited to Swiss physician and nutritional pioneer, Maximilian Bircher-Benner. The original recipe consisted of oat flakes, raw apples, condensed milk, nuts and lemon juice and it led Dr. Bircher-Benner to overwhelming improvements in the health of many of his patients.
I have modified the recipe in the light of current research to maximise its health benefits.
