Bircher Müsli is pretty popular here in Germany. Everybody knows it’s a healthy way to start a day. But this never convinced me to try it. I love my morning porridge and I wasn’t going to change my routine until I got to Switzerland. While being in a foreign country I always try to eat like people around me, so one morning I decided to go for bircher müsli. That was seriously the best müsli I have eaten, so I decided to try it with other ingredients. That was a discovery of the autumn for me! As soon as I could I started tasting some of the recipes to find the perfect balance between ingredients.
But before we start preparing I wanted to give you a short overview why Bircher Müsli exists. The recipe was developed for Bircher sanatorium patients to improve their digestion. The original recipe contained apples, yoghurt, oatmeal (just a little), sweetened condensed milk, ground nuts and lemon juice. Not too healthy… I would say 🙂 but I am sure it tasted delicious with the sweetened condensed milk. Oh, this reminds me of my grandmother coffee.
And here they are, the 3 Bircher Müsli that made to my morning routine. If you looking for a better way to start the day: THIS IS IT 🙂
