BIRCHER WITH BERRIES AND ALMONDS
Benefits: Oats offer a slow release of energy, rich in minerals, B vitamins and soluble fiber (beta-glucans) to help maintain cholesterol balance, oats are a great way to start the day. Soaking grains and nuts makes them more bioavailable for our us too.
100g muesli (I use Dorset muesli)
1 pint soya/ oat/ hemp milk
2 apples grated
Cover the muesli mix with your choice of milk, until just immersed.
Grate in the 2 apples and mix in, so that all the apple is submerged.
Cover and chill overnight.
Before serving, you may need to loosen up with more milk, as oats will have expanded.
Serve up with fresh berries, chia or flax seeds, and toasted flaked almonds. A spoon of yoghurt and sprinkle of cinnamon make nice additions also.
Keeps in fridge for 3-4 days
