A couple of punnets of blueberries going for a song reminded me how much I love blueberries with bircher muesli.
1 large tart apple, like a Granny Smith 1 Tbsp lemon juice 1 cup rolled oats 1¼ cups Greek-style yoghurt 1 tsp sugar ¼ cup milk 6 Brazil nuts, slivered Yoghurt for serving To serve Extra yoghurt Toasted coconut flakes Homemade muesli Maple syrup or aromatic honey for drizzling Fresh sliced fruit, blueberries or sugared tamarillos Extra oats and desiccated coconut for toasting
1 Peel apple and grate coarsely. Toss with lemon juice. Mix in rolled oats, yoghurt, sugar, milk and Brazil nuts. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.
2 If the muesli is very thick, add a little more milk or yoghurt, otherwise serve a little yoghurt on top. Garnish with toasted coconut flakes and drizzle with aromatic honey (if the honey is stiff, warm it in the microwave, or in a cup in a basin of hot water), or Maple syrup, or serve with a few spoonfuls of homemade muesli, or fresh fruit (or dare I say, THE LOT!).
3 Another idea is to toast a few spoonfuls of oats in a dry frying pan (skillet) over gentle heat until they turn golden and crisp, then add in a spoonful of desiccated coconut. Remove from heat as soon as the coconut colours, and tip mixture onto a plate to cool. Store in a container and sprinkle over muesli or porridge.
