Hello lovelies, summer is really over now and I‘m looking forward to many autumnal recipes. It starts with this one: Autumnal Bircher Muesli. It makes sense to start with a breakfast recipe. We really like Bircher Muesli, especially in summer with lots of berries. But as we soon have to say good bye to the variety of fresh berries that summer has offered us, I now have a seasonally adapted version of the delicious muesli for you. Apples, pears, plums, fresh figs and a pinch of cinnamon warm us from the inside on cooler autumn mornings.
Culinary speaking autumn is definitely my favorite season, because that’s when the fruits (and vegetables) of summer are harvested, pumpkins and fresh apples are back and cooler evenings invite you to cuddle. The signs are therefore entirely on “comfort food”. Delicious curries, soups, stews and pasta dishes are at the top of our list and you can look forward to such recipes in the near future.
But now back to our delicious breakfast: our Autumnal Bircher Muesli is prepared very quickly. You can also prepare it in the evening and leave it in the fridge over night. If it’s too cold for you in the morning, add some milk foam, which we like very much.
And now here is the recipe for our Autumnal Bircher Muesli:
Autumnal Bircher Muesli
- 120 gr (1 ¼ cup) oats
- 1-2 Tbsp raisins or dried physalis
- 1 cup plant-based milk e.g. oat
- 5 Tbsp coconut yogurt
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 apple
- 1 pear
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground flax seeds
- Plum jam or compote, hazelnuts, fresh figs, physalis and almond butter for the topping
- Mix oat with raisins/physalis, milk and yogurt in a bowl
- Wash and grate the apple and pear
- Add them to the oats
- Stir in maple syrup, cinnamon and flax seeds
- Let soak for 10 minutes or prepare the muesli in the evening and leave it in the fridge over night
- Decorate with toppings of your choice, we chose plum jam, fresh figs, physalis, roasted hazelnuts and almond butter
Very important are the many toppings, at least that’s how it is here. Warm plum compote, roasted hazelnuts, sweet figs and the slightly sour berries and physalis make the Bircher a well-balanced breakfast. And creamy nut butter can’t be missing at any breakfast. It provides additional energy and healthy fats. Just make sure to use one without sugar, or make it yourself – recipes can already be found here.
Do you like to eat Bircher muesli and if so, how do you like it? We like to switch between cold and warm oatmeal, so we also eat porridge often (the favorite breakfast of my children), you can find a delicious recipe here.
Have a good start into beautiful autumn!
