P.S. In case someone is wondering why some of my breakfasts are called “Overnight Breakfast” and others “Bircher”, I thought I should maybe explain my very simple logic behind the name choices: I do not add fresh fruit into “Overnight Breakfasts” until serving, whereas into my “Birchers”, fresh fruit is added already the night before and soaked along with the grains. Not sure why I just don’t call all soaked breakfasts with the same name…but at least I have now explained the pretty rational logic behind that decision so I hope I’m not confusing you anymore in case I previously did. But now let me introduce you:
Apple + cinnamon multigrain Bircher
What you will need:
1/3dl oat flakes
1/3dl rye flakes
1/3dl spelt flakes or spelt semolina (Finnish: manna)
1dl oat milk
1dl natural (organic) yogurt (or unflavoured dairy free yogurt)
1 favourite apple (I like to use organic Kanzi or Royal Gala depending on the season)
1tsp maca – I use Organic Burst
berries, raisins, dates
How to do it?
- Chop the apple and place the pieces into your overnight jar (you will need a pretty big one for this).
- Combine all dry ingredients (but not the toppings) and add this mixture into your jar along with the apple.
- Separately combine the oat milk with the yogurt and add also this mixture into your jar and then just mix everything well.
- Place your bircher into the fridge and let it stay there for at least a couple of hours but preferably overnight. In the morning, enjoy with your favourite toppings- I think berries and raisins go well with this one!
P.P.S. Despite the long name, it only takes a few minutes to prepare this so just go ahead!
