Are you on the hunt for the perfect start to the day? Then we have just the right thing for you in this blog post. A simple, healthy and energy-rich breakfast that also provides vitamins! The taste is also fantastically creamy delicious.
We have the Swiss doctor Dr Maximilian Bircher-Benner to thank for this wonderful muesli variant. He was first served the muesli at an alpine hut and then developed it into a dietary food for his patients.
Bircher-Benner is considered a pioneer of wholefood products. To this day his teachings are decisive for wholefood nutrition. Thanks to him, this diet has gained general recognition in modern nutrition science.
By the way, the Swiss word “mues” means small mush, from which the more common word muesli is derived. Bircher muesli was named after its discoverer Bircher-Benner. As a breakfast, the former diet food is now known and loved all over the world.
The basic recipe for Bircher muesli
The fact is that Bircher muesli is not a modern invention. The original recipe is more than 100 years old.
We have prepared a simple recipe so that you too can make the healthy and filling Bircher muesli creation. You can add other ingredients and vary it to suit your individual needs.
Put the oat flakes in a bowl and cover them with water
Place the mixture into the refrigerator and allow the mixture to swell for at least one hour
Take the muesli out of the fridge in the morning and add the milk
Grate the apples over the muesli and stir it into it
Sprinkle the grated or chopped hazelnuts over the muesli
Do you want to decrease the waiting time in the morning? Then you should put the soaked oatmeal into the refrigerator the day before. This way you can take the oatmeal directly out of the fridge the next day and refine the Bircher Muesli with the remaining ingredients.
Just like Bircher Müsli, the Tyrolean company Verival has a long tradition. The company produces various breakfast variations of the popular muesli and relies 100 percent on the finest organic ingredients and high-quality products.
All blends are free of palm oil and the breakfast products are certified organic. Verival is also committed to the protection of bees and the cultivation of old cereals.
For this reason, only raw materials from GMO-free and organic landscapes are used for the numerous types of muesli.
The classic Bircher muesli, as invented and still found in many households, is one of the healthiest breakfast dishes worldwide. The oat flakes have a high fibre content, which keeps you full for a long time after breakfast.
Ingredients like nuts provide the body with important and healthy fats. Apples and milk contain important vitamins and minerals. In addition, Bircher muesli is the optimal energy supplier for your day.
Why is Bircher muesli so popular?
This beloved breakfast, which has been known and loved for decades, can still be found in almost every breakfast restaurant, bakery or hotel. And although muesli is not eaten for breakfast in all countries, Bircher muesli is known and loved all over the world.
You can also prepare Bircher muesli very well as a snack between meals. As already mentioned above, the muesli provides many important nutrients and also tastes good.
It is probably exactly this connection between an ideal supply of the body with energy and the simple production method that makes Bircher muesli the most famous muesli in the world.
