Grain Free Bircher Style Muesli
1 tsp pumpkin seeds
1 tsp sunflower seeds
1 small/medium apple/pair
1/2 tsp cinnamon
A squeeze of honey
Yoghurt or cream
Soak the almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds in a cup and a half of water overnight. Make sure the water is well above the line of the nuts and seeds – they are thirsty and will soak up water over night.
In the Morning
Drain off the soaked nuts and seeds and rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear. Place them into your food processor and pulse start/stop a few times until the mix starts to break down. Add sliced apple/pear and cinnamon – pulse a few more times until apple/pear is broken up into smaller pieces. Tip the mix into your breakfast bowl, add a good blob of yoghurt, a swish of honey and breakfast is done.
Rinse and place the soaked nuts and seeds into a bowl. Grate apple over the top, add cinnamon, honey and eat without blending. The nuts and seeds will be very soft and moist from soaking overnight. Enjoy in its own or top it off with plain yoghurt, fresh cream or both.
