Blackberry Muesli is a healthy protein breakfast that is low in fat – the perfect way to energize you to start your day.

 

 

Blackberry Muesli

Muesli (sometimes called Bircher) is a breakfast that was developed around 1900 by a Swiss doctor, Maximilian Bircher-Brenner, for his patients.  It is an oats based meal that can include any variety of fruits, nuts and seeds and can be made with either milk or fruit juice.

It became popular in the rest of Europe and America in the 1960’s when an interest in healthy eating started to become popular.  There are now many brands in the markets that produce packaged muesli.  However, it is so easy to make yourself and completely customizable according to your own preferences.  It is a fiber and fruit packed bowl of goodness that will give you the energy to boost your day into high gear.

Here are some other healthy oat based breakfasts you can start the day with!

Prep Time8 hrs
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time8 hrs
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Continental
Servings: 3

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 5 pitted dates chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1 apple peeled, cored and grated
  • 2 1/2 cups lowfat milk you can use whole milk, but using low fat milk makes it an even more low fat meal
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin seeds/ pepitas
  • 3 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • 30 blackberries
  • 3 tablespoons of honey optional
  • 6 tablespoons nonfat Greek yogurt

Instructions

  • In a large container, combine oats, oat bran, dates, dried cherries, raisins, apple and milk.  Stir to combine, cover and place in refrigerator overnight.
  • Most of the milk will have been absorbed.  The oats will now be soft and palatable.
  • Place 1 cup of the muesli in each bowl.  Place 2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt on top of each serving.  Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the honey on top, if using (the fruit provide a lot of sweetness - I found it tasted just fine when I omitted the honey as well).  Sprinkle 1 tablespoon each of the pumpkin seeds and the almonds.  Top with 10 of the berries.

Notes

Prep time is overnight resting time.
If you would like your muesli drier, you can reduce the milk quantity to 2 cups.
