Healthy Breakfast Muesli | #10HealthyMeals | Anna Jones


Hi Food Tube, I’m Anna Jones and I’m going to show you how to make one of my favourite ever breakfasts. It’s bircher muesli, this is a dairy free breakfast, and it’s warming and delicious and exactly what you need to get you going for the day. For this I’m using almond milk, which is dairy free but you can use any milk you want. So I’m going to start with the oats. The oats are going to be the base of this. Everyone’s got them in their cupboard. They’re super cheap. I’m using rolled oats, instead of the instant ones. The instant ones can be a bit more powdery. And we’re going to soak these. So they’re going to soften up a little bit. We’re going to use around 100 grams, which is enough for two people. These little chia seeds are pretty amazing. They’re really, really high in protein and they’re packed with nutrients. So adding a couple of tablespoons of these to your breakfast will give you a massive protein boost and keep you full until lunch time. These are pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are really high in iron, if you can’t get hold of chia seeds then you could just double up on the pumpkin seeds. And we’re going to add just about a tablespoon. So the real beauty of this bircher is that you can actually just make it with whatever else you’ve got. and you can actually adapt this recipe to suit what you like to eat in the morning. What you need to add next is a little bit of sweetness. I’m going to use maple syrup. A Tablespoon here. Honey is the same as maple syrup. It’s sweet, but it’s better than just adding a tablespoon of plain refined sugar. A little bit of vanilla extract here. This is just going to add some warmth and some kind of depth and some heady spice to this. I love adding lemon zest to lots of things. You might think it’s a bit of a weird thing to add at breakfast, They’re refreshing and I think having that in the morning is really, really nice. The next thing is some almond milk. You could use any milk you like here really. I like almond milk because it adds a bit of extra protein and a bit of extra energy. I’ve got about three hundred and fifty millilitres which is going to be the perfect amount to soak these oats. By soaking the oats and seeds overnight, we make this lovely, creamy, texture, but at the same time we’re actually speeding up the digestion process. So, that’s all ready to go. And you can really smell the vanilla and the zestiness of the lemon in here. So what I’m going to do is cover this. I’m just going to use a plate. You can use cling film, or whatever and I’m just going to pop it in the fridge overnight. This birchers been in the fridge over night, erm, you can see here that the oats have puffed up a bit, you can see that the chia seeds have kind of swollen up a bit in there, and it’s lovely and creamy and thick. So I’m really happy with that. I’m just going to pop that here, while I chop up a bit of fruit to go with it. I’m just going to do a couple of pears, but you can really use whatever’s in season. Add a little pinch of cinnamon. I’m going to squeeze over a tiny bit of lemon juice and i’m also going to add a few of these sour cherries. I always do this fresh on the morning I’m going to eat it. The bircher is brilliant to do overnight, so this is all the work done the night before, and all you need to do in the morning is just chop up a little bit of fruit or even throw some berries, or drop some dried fruit on the top if you’re really in a rush. Put other half back in the fridge for tomorrow, because this bircher will be good for a couple of days. I’m going to top this off with a little bit of the pear and the sour cherries. You know this is going to be absolutely delicious. And then to finish off, just a tiny bit more maple syrup. So here it is. My delicious overnight bircher muesli, it’s packed with nutrition, it’s full of energy and it’s completely delicious. So, I’m just going to have – mm – that is really, really good. It’s zingy, it’s lemony, I can taste the vanilla, cinnamon on the pears, the sweetness from the maple syrup, Tha is really good.
