  • Hi, FoodTube. I'm Anna Jones and I'm going to show you how to make one of my favorite ever breakfasts.

  • It's bircher muesli! This is a dairy free breakfast and it's warming and delicious,

  • and exactly what you need to get you going for the day.

  • For this, I'm using almond milk which is dairy free,

  • but you can use any milk you want.

  • So I'm gonna start with the oats. The oats are gonna be the base of this.

  • Everyone's got them in the cupboard. They are super cheap.

  • I'm using rolled oats instead of the instant ones. The instant ones can be a bit more powdery.

  • And we are going to soak these. So they are going to soften enough a little bit.

  • We are going to use around 100 grams which is enough for 2 people.

  • These little chia seeds are pretty amazing.

  • They're really, really high in protein and they're packed with nutrients.

  • So adding a couple of tablespoon of these into your breakfast will give you a massive protein boost and keep you full until lunch time.

  • These are pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are really high in iron.

  • If you can't get hold of chia seeds, then you could just double up on the pumpkin seeds.

  • And we gonna add just about a tablespoon

  • So the real beauty with this bircher is that you can actually just make it with whatever else you've got,

  • and you can actually adapt this recipe to suit what you like to eat in the morning.

  • What we need to add next is a little bit of sweetness.

  • I'm going to use maple syrup. A tablespoon here.

  • Honey is the same as maple syrup is sweet but it's better than adding a tablespoon just plain refine sugar.

  • A little bit of vanilla extract here.

  • This is just gonna add some warmth, some kind of depth and some heady spice to this.

  • I love adding lemon zests to lots of things. You might think it's a bit of a weird thing to add at breakfast.

  • They're refreshing and I think having that in the morning is really, really nice.

  • The next thing is some almond milk. You could use any milk you like here really. I like almond milk because it adds a bit of a extra protein and a bit extra of energy.

  • I've got about 350 ml here which is going to be the perfect amount to soak these oats.

  • By soaking the oats and seeds overnight, we make this lovely, creamy texture.

  • But at the same time, we are actually speeding up the digestion process.

  • So that's all ready to go, and you can really smell the vanilla and the zestiness of the lemon in here.

  • So what I am going to do is just cover this.

  • I'm just going to use a plate. If you use some cling film or whatever and I'm just going to pop in the fridge overnight.

  • This bircher's been in fridge overnight.

  • You can see here that oats have puffed up a bit, you can see that the chia seeds have kind of swollen up a bit in there,

  • and it's lovely and creamy and thick. So I'm really happy with that.

  • I'm just going to pop that here, while I chop up a bit of fruit to go with it.

  • I'm just going to do a couple of pears, but you can really use whatever's in season.

  • Add a little pinch of cinnamon. I'm gonna squeeze over a tiny little bit of lemon juice,

  • and I'm also just gonna add a few of these sour cherries

  • I always do this fresh on the morning I'm going to eat it.

  • The bircher is brilliant to do overnight, so this is all the work done the night before,

  • and all you need to do in the morning just chop up a little bit of fruit or even throw some berries or dried fruit on top if you really in a rush.

  • Put other half back in the fridge for tomorrow, cause this bircher is actually good for a couple of days.

  • I'm going to top these off with a little bit of pear and sour cherries.

  • You know this is going to be absolutely delicious.

  • And then to finish off, just a tiny bit more maple syrup.

  • So here it is. My delicious overnight bircher museli. It's packed with nutrition,

  • it's full energy and it's completely delicious.

  • So I'm just gonna have -mm- that is really really good. It's zingy. It's lemony.

  • I can taste the vanilla, the cinnamon on the pears, the sweetness of the maple syrup,

  • That is really good. I'd love you to share with me what you make for breakfast,

  • what are your healthy breakfast options.
