One of my favourite healthy breakfast foods is my bircher muesli recipe. It’s quick to serve, it makes a large portion and if you store it right, it can last a family a whole week. By this I mean, in an airtight container in the fridge.
I got the base recipe from my mother-in-law and have adapted it to suit our tastes and dietary requirements. It’s perfect for a healthy breakfast for growing kids. AND it’s completely customisable, based on your family’s dietary requirements
You can half or double this portion size to suit the size of your family and how frequently you will serve it for breakfast.
Get yourself an airtight container like this Sistema container that I love with the clip on lid.
4 cups of Rolled Oats
3 medium granny smith apples
6-8 oranges (depending on how much juice each yields)
1 packet of Trail Mix that has dried fruits and nut, with seed – I love this one from Coles
1 cup of blueberries
1-2 cups of whatever milk you choose
- Add the rolled oats, trail mix and blueberries to the container and mix together so that each ingredient is dispersed evenly throughout the container
- Grate the apples and mix the grated apples evenly through the oat mix.
- Juice the oranges and pour the juice over the mix evenly.
- Slowly pour the milk over the mix, evenly. Ensure that the mixture is wet but not soppy. Add more milk if you want your muesli to be more moist.
- Seal the container and store in fridge overnight.
The muesli will be ready to serve the next morning for breakfast after the oats and trail mix have had a chance to absorb some of the milk and juice.
Mix it with some unsweetened greek yogurt and manuka honey if you want to be a little bit fancy, or just eat it as it is.
