Some things last forever and so does my love for oatmeal. It took me I while to realize that the famous bircher muesli, which has been around forever, was doing the trick way before one of those Instagramers had the idea to start uploading pics with the hashtag #overnightoats. But that is exactly what bircher is, right? An old friend from kindergarten days, whom we didn’t know to value back then.
I regret my foolish behavior a lot. But kids are kids and they can be cruel. In order to make up for my mistakes, here comes my veganized version of a traditional breakfast from the alps:
Vegan Bircher Muesli, my friends.
This is an easy and natural way of prepping your oats and once that you know the trick, you´ll want to have this again and again!
I love its creamy texture and add a spoon or two more of soy yogurt than other people might do. Since I am a bit impatient, I like to do everything the night before. So when breakfast time comes, I only have to open the fridge and take out a jar of deliciously sweet and perfectly spiced porridge.
Enough talking. This is so quick to make, that you could have done it in the time that it took you to read this article (if you are a slow reader, I admit).
Let´s get you ready for breakfast!
Vegan Bircher Muesli
This is what you need:
1 cup of yogurt
1/3 cup of oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 apple, grated
1/2 banana, sliced
2 tbsp agave syrup
2 tbsp raisins
2 tbsp nuts of your choice
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
This is how you do it:
- The night (or at least an hour) before breakfast, pour yogurt, oats, chia, lemon juice and syrup in a bowl, mix well, cover up and leave to soak in the fridge.
- In the morning, take out the bowl, stir well, add a little more yogurt or some plant milk if necessary (depending on the consistency you like) and mix in the apple and banana plus raisins and nuts.
- You are all set and ready for breakfast! That was easy right?! Well, enjoy!
