But first, breakfast

I want to go to sleep early today (…and I’m not getting to the importance of a good night’s sleep now because then I definitely wouldn’t get to bed early enough). However, before that I just wanted to share with you the recipe for today’s breakfast bircher, which is a true power brekkie! I usually prepare this bircher when I know that a long busy day is coming ahead because its such a satisfying start for the day, but of course you can have this breakfast on any day you like.

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)

1tbsp flaxseeds

1/2tsp cinnamon

1tsp maca – I use Organic Burst

Preferred toppings:

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!
