Healthy Breakfast Muesli | #10HealthyMeals | Anna Jones

Hi Food Tube, I’m Anna Jones and I’m going to show you how to make one of my favourite 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 going to start with the oats. The oats are going to be the base of this. Everyone’s got them in their cupboard. They’re super cheap. I’m using rolled oats, instead of the instant ones. The instant ones can be a bit more powdery. And we’re going to soak these. So they’re going to soften up a little bit. We’re going to use around 100 grams, which is enough for two 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 tablespoons of these to 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’re going to add just about a tablespoon. So the real beauty of 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 you 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. It’s sweet, but it’s better than just adding a tablespoon of plain refined sugar. A little bit of vanilla extract here. This is just going to add some warmth and some kind of depth and some heady spice to this. I love adding lemon zest 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 extra protein and a bit of extra energy. I’ve got about three hundred and fifty millilitres 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’re 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’m going to do is cover this. I’m just going to use a plate. You can use cling film, or whatever and I’m just going to pop it in the fridge overnight. This birchers been in the fridge over night, erm, you can see here that the 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 going to squeeze over a tiny bit of lemon juice and i’m also going to 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 is just chop up a little bit of fruit or even throw some berries, or drop some dried fruit on the top if you’re really in a rush. Put other half back in the fridge for tomorrow, because this bircher will be good for a couple of days. I’m going to top this off with a little bit of the pear and the 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 muesli, it’s packed with nutrition, it’s full of energy and it’s completely delicious. So, I’m just going to have – mm – that is really, really good. It’s zingy, it’s lemony, I can taste the vanilla, cinnamon on the pears, the sweetness from the maple syrup, Tha is really good.

  1. Not true that maple syrup or honey are better than normal sugar! At a molecular level they're pretty much the same

  2. Great breakfast, thanks! Iwould like to recommend using Date Honey instead of maple syrup (the original maple syrup is not easy to find in some countries…). Just make sure to buy the 100% date honey, organic, not the sugary substitute… Date honey is also known as "Silan".

  3. Fucking love Muesli for breakfast, can't go wrong with oats, seeds, nuts, milk, and some fresh or dried fruits!

  4. I swear whoever thought of this breakfast is a genius. Also I have to try those oats your using, as I normally buy the cheaper ones. great video

  5. I had hot oats with vanilla rice milk this morning. I like to cook a banana in with the oats. Brings out the sweetness of the banana and if you're trying to save money and don't wanna be buying oats all the time it creates the illusion of having more oats in your bowl. Chia seeds do that too but I make chia pudding to take with me on work days so I try to save my chia seeds for that. I cook the oats, milk, and banana together and then I add whatever toppings I want. Today it was raspberries that I warmed up, granola, and pecans. When I mixed it all together it was like pink dessert in a bowl. I did add a little bit of stevia but not nearly as much as I would have if I hadn't cooked the banana or the raspberries.

  6. Actually since I'm Swiss i grew up with Bircher Müesli. In this recipe something incredible important is missing: The grated apple! You have to add it to the Bircher Müesli, it's giving the Müesli its significant taste and texture.

  7. IDK if I'm allergic to oats or if my mom force-fed me them so long as a child that my throat seals shut. but I can't eat them! I wish I could.

  8. Just tried this, and am eating it now. Absolutely delicious! Well worth using almond milk for the taste if nothing else 🙂

  9. All almond milk products in Denmark are contaminated with added poisons, the organic ones too, they ahve been sprayed with chemicals even when it says it hasnt. I get intense migraine from ALL non diary alternative milk products so far, so be careful if u are sensitive alr. Sad they ruin the healthy prodcuts, but hey thats Denmark for us :l

  10. I tried this and I have to say, I'm not a fan of overnight muesli. I don't think the soaking breaks down the oats enough. At least not for my taste. I opt for Jamie's porridge method with pre made muesli and it comes out delicious! Plus if you have dried fruit in the muesli, it will reconstitute and sweeten the porridge. Delicious!

  11. legumele astea recunosc că folosesc vase românești? va e dor de vremea când erați un imperiu și călcați oamenii pe cap și nici macar nu sunteți capabili să va ascundeți. penbililor

  12. I've used this recipe several times and love it! I change up the fruit depending on what I want and what's in season, but it's been great! Thank you!

  13. Nice recipe but this is something I would do on the weekend. Weekdays I like something quick so probably make porridge with banana or something

  14. i always cook the porridge don't know why but I'm scared of eating raw food so can anyone please tell me which kind of oat should i look for that don't need boiling? thanx in adv

  15. Honey and Maple syrup are just as bad as refined sugar. Step this up a bit with some blackstrap molasses or date sugar.

  16. Are there nutritional differences between soaking vs cooking on the stove? Both reach the same creamy consistency…

  17. So you do the pear fresh but only use half of it. Sooo then you use it the next day? When its not fresh. This video smells like bs

  18. I liked your recipe! That's great! I try this immediately ))))) *******))) Я тебя люблю. sweet Anna! ))

  19. What I have everyday for breaky is my own museli. Soak oats, chia seeds and flaxseeds in fresh homemade sugarless watermelon juice overnight, then in the morning add yoghurt grated apple and mango.

  20. Yes I do like your breakfast. .I'm very into healthy breakfast to..yesterday had oats pumpkin seed chopped Brazil nuts..and mixed berrys from my allotment. .with soya milk and a good drizzle of maple syrap. .
    Today had mixed mousele..can't will spell it ! With pumpkin seeds chopped almonds rhubarb chopped coconut raisins and a good drizzle of maple syrap. .delicious!

  21. I eat it with chestnuts and chocolate and milk and its so good


    it gives me a lot of gases and i fart a lot in class and THANK GOD all of them are silent and without a smell

  22. "Massive protein boost."

    Chia seeds have roughly 16g protein per 100g. A tablespoon of them as in this recipe would be roughly 2g of protein. Hardly what I'd call massive.

    You'd be much better starting your day off with an omelette. Now that would be a massive protein boost.

  23. Sorry, but this absolutely is NOT Bircher Müesli… and if you are going to call it that, at least find out how to pronounce it properly first. I make Bircher Müesli semi-regularly with no added sugar, it's really not needed as all the sweetness comes from the fruit. I really don't understand why you would put maple syrup or vanilla essence in this?

  24. Enough antinutrients for your liking? Lol jk but still

    If that were fermented (just as easy), it would be healthier, taste so much better (richer, more complex), and would last longer. "Overnight oats" are missing out on a great opportunity…
