Gluten-free Bircher Muesli

Bircher muesli was introduced by Maximillian Bircher-Brenner for patients going through his healing therapy in hospital. If, like me, you try to avoid grains1 tbsp pumpkin seed and cereals, then this version of Bircher Muesli is a great alternative.

This muesli provides you with lots of fibre to support the digestion, plenty of omega 3’s to reduce inflammation and a healthy cardiovascular system  and keep your energy levels buzzing for teh morning without feeling hungry.

  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds (linseeds)
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds

  • 1 tbsp goji berries
  • 1 tbsp cranberries
  • 60-80 mls almond milk or orange juice
  • 1 large eating apple – grated (skin on)
  • 125g fresh fruit – berries, kiwi, mango, papaya
  • 2 tbsp natural bio-live organic yogurt or coconut yogurt if dairy free.

  • Soak all the seeds and dried fruits in teh orange juice or almond milk (as you choose) for a minimum of 1 hour or overnight in the fridge.
