orange and anti-oxidant berry bircher style muesli

Gluten free, Grain free, Low Fodmap & Vegan.  

You’re going to love this easy and delicious breakfast in a jar. You can enjoy it right away or let the flavours steep and the nuts get deliciously chewy overnight in the fridge. 

Traditional bircher muesli is made with oats that are soaked overnight in a combination of milk and or apple juice to soften and become porridge-like. To create a Paleo version, we’ve run with the basic formula but swapped out the oats and milk for an array of tasty and equally hearty, nuts and seeds imbued in homemade yogurt and freshly squeezed orange juice. The combination of sweet and sour antioxidant dried berries, cinnamon and cardamon infuse the bircher with aromatic warmth that is the perfect morning comfort food any time of the year.
