100g rolled oats
100ml cold milk (I used soy milk)
20ml apple or orange juice
150g yogurt (I used Greek-style)
1 large granny smith apple, cored and roughly grated
1 tbsp honey
½ tsp vanilla extract
pinch of cinnamon
30g pistachios, almonds, or walnuts (or whatever you want), chopped
Whatever else you want to add: fresh/frozen/canned/dried fruit, seeds, nuts, or flavouring like orange zest or cardamom. I used pomegranate seeds and blueberries – you are the master of your own Bircher destiny!
Put the oats in a mixing bowl and add the milk and juice. Stir and leave them to soak overnight in the fridge. When ready to serve, add the yogurt, apple, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and whatever mix-ins you’re using.
I can’t believe some people are serial breakfast-skippers (pun intended!)… don’t they know what they’re missing?
