Usually enjoyed at breakfast, this dish also makes a scrumptious dessert!

{Serves 4 - 6}


Ingredients:
  • 200g jumbo rolled oats, gluten-free
  • 10g pistachios whole
  • 10g almonds whole
  • 10g pecans, whole
  • 20g sultanas
  • 4 dried figs, cut into small strips (remove stalk)
  • 1 pink lady apple, cored and grated (keep skin on)
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 600ml almond milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut yogurt (coyo)
  • cinnamon, sprinkle

Garnish:
  • 2 figs quartered
  • honey, drizzle
  • 2 pinches coconut sugar
  • desiccated coconut, handful

Preparation time – 20 mins, refrigeration 8 hours (overnight)

Method:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the rolled oats, cinnamon, grated apple, pistachios, almonds, pecans, sultanas and dried figs. Mix well.
  2. In a measuring jug, add the almond milk, agave nectar, and coconut yogurt. Beat together with a mini hand whisk or fork, then pour over the oats.
  3. Gently stir everything together, then cover and place in fridge for 8 hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F, gas mark 4, 180°C (160°C fan-assisted).
  5. Line a small baking tray with parchment paper, place the quartered figs on the tray, drizzle with honey and 2 pinches of coconut sugar.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then leave to cool.
  7. When ready to serve, place the bircher muesli in serving bowls, place the quartered figs, drizzle a little juice from the figs and sprinkle with desiccated coconut.

LISA’S TIP:

I love to have a big batch of bircher muesli in the fridge, it’s the perfect breakfast when you’re in a hurry. You can keep this in the fridge for 2-3 days. Be adventurous with your fillings, once you get the hang of making it. For cooler mornings heat the Bircher muesli on the stove for 2-3 minutes.
