Bircher Muesli Breakfast Bowl

Bircher Muesli Breakfast Bowl

Time for breakfast! This dish is super quickly assembled and prepared the night prior to our beloved breakfast celebration. The juices of the grated apple in combination with a little bit of lant-based milk make the oats soft and creamy, which is heaven when combined with nutty peanut butter and crunchy toppings! Oaty, cinnamony breakfasts are my absolute favourite and it’s nice to use similar ingredients yet switch between different ways of preparing them. Are you up for a bowl of Bircher muesli? Good, let’s get this going!

Oats are whole-grain, which is what we love because compared to refined grains, they are a much better source of fiber and nutrients. Additionally, oats are higher in protein than many other grains and provide you with antioxidants that help control your blood sugar and cholesterol levels, isn’t that fantastic? There seems to be some confusion about their gluten-content (which is only relevant to those who are intolerant to gluten. Gluten is a protein and not a mystified enemy!) and here is the answer: oats are usually gluten free BUT they are often handled in factories where there are also products containing barley, wheat and rye. Hence, contamination may cause for gluten to be present in the oats we buy UNLESS they are labelled glutenfree. Makes sense? Anyhow, either gluten-free or slightly gluten-contaminated oats are good for you and provide you not only with many minerals, nutrients and fiber, but they also offer a HUGE variety of ways to prepare them (more recipes will follow, of course). Alright, let’s stir these babies and make some breakfast!
