Our healthy bircher muesli recipe: sugar freeJanuary 25, 2016
A Sugar Substitute
Have you noticed how popular Bircher muesli is these days? But traditionally, it has some form of sugar in it whether it’s normal sugar or honey. Well, you know how delicious and sweet bananas are? If you mash them up and add them to your bircher, you won’t need any sugar at all.
Mix it up: Oats & Buckwheat
The key to good nutrition is diversity. So, boil yourself up some buckwheat and at it into the oats to soak overnight. It’s a lovely, filling mixture. And as buckwheat is related to rhubarb seeds, it’s not a cereal and it’s gluten free – even if oats aren’t. So, check out the recipe below and give breakfast a bit of bite!
