I converted my daughter to have Bircher muesli for breakfast instead of having toast and jam. I love Bircher muesli I came across it when I lived in bondi, where going out for breakfast is part of the bondi lifestyle.
I came across the ALPS Blend recipe from weighitup. This is a great website with loads of tasty recipes. I love how they have the calorie counts and nutritional information with each recipe. The best part is that it’s free to join! Yep it’s FREE!
1 cup rolled oats
1 green apple
1/4 apple juice (optional)
120g tub of yoghurt – I use low fat yoghurt
2 tbsp ALPS blend
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup raw almonds
½ cup flax seeds (linseed)
½ cup sesame seeds
¼ cup poppy seeds
¼ cup chia seeds
Makes 4 cups. I also add this to my salads.
2 tbsp yoghurt
Handful of blueberries or strawberries (optional)
There’s endless possibilities on how you serve this. The cafe I went to in bondi had half serve of Bircher and half toasted muesli with a dollop of yoghurt and poached fruit.
