Bircher Muesli with Almond Milk

Someone on instagram asked me this week for a bircher muesli recipe, I’m not sure why I hadn’t made one before but I’m now obsessed – I had totally forgotten how delicious it is!  Each bite is so awesomely creamy and it’s the easiest breakfast ever. It takes just five minutes to throw together in the evening and then you can just grab it and go in the morning. It’s full of so much goodness too so you’ll feel amazing. Each bowl is made by simply mixing oats with mashed banana and raspberries, lots of almond milk and blueberries, and then an amazing combination of sunflower seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, maple syrup and cacao nibs. I love topping my bowl with more berries, seeds and some raisins in the morning but it’s also amazing with things like granola, coconut yoghurt, mango and dates. The only thing I’d say with this recipe is that you really should try and use homemade almond milk as it’s much creamier than anything you buy in a supermarket which is just a bit too watery for this recipe – almond milk is really the easiest thing to make though, and you can find a recipe here.

The other exciting thing is that I’ve just launched an incredible Easter giveaway competition to celebrate reaching 100,000 followers on instagram, full details for the competition are here – I can’t wait to see all your photos!

Serves 2

– 1 cup of oats (120g)

– 1 over ripe banana

– 1 and a 1/2 cups of homemade almond milk (375ml)

– 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey

– 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

– a handful of sunflower seeds (30g)

– a handful of pumpkin seeds (30g)

– 1/4 of a cup of raspberries (40g)

– 1/4 of a cup of blueberries (40g)

– a handful of cacao nibs (20g)

 Start by slicing up the banana, then place the slices in a mixing bowl with the almond milk and raspberries and mash them all together with a fork. Then add in the oats, seeds, cacao nibs, chia seeds and sweetener and stir together. Place the bowl in the fridge and allow it to thicken overnight.
