Recipe: Breakfast Bircher Bowl

A nutritious and tasty on on-the-go breakfast!

You can prepare most of this the night before, making it the perfect breakfast to eat on the go in the morning. It’s healthy too, and has a very low GI – which means it’ll keep you going all the way to lunch!

Ingredients (serves 1):

25g oats

100ml milk/almond milk/apple juice

Salt

1 apple

1 tbsp yoghurt

1 tsp honey

Hazelnuts/ walnuts or similar

Raisins

1) Place the oats in a bowl with the liquid and a pinch of salt, cover with clingfilm and leave in the fridge overnight. This lets the oats soften and creates a much nicer texture than using unsoaked oats. You can use whichever type of liquid you prefer – almond milk makes a sweeter bircher, while apple juice gives a fresher taste.

2) In the morning, stir the oats and grate the apple on top.

3) Add the yoghurt and honey, and mix it all together. Chop up the hazelnuts and scatter on top with the raisins too.

It’s really easy to adapt this recipe to in- clude different types of nuts, seeds or fruit; just use the oats, milk, apple and yoghurt as a base and then experiment away! Enjoy!
