Bircher Muesli


Tomorrow is Mark's birthday. I just made muesli for our breakfast, a little treat. We have been watching our pennies since he was laid off a few weeks ago, so this is a splurge. We all know how much I love birthdays!! A time to celebrate life, as well as the first day of spring!
I will give the recipe for one serving.. I just made it times 8... extra is always good, and we eat big... especially when it is this  yummy!

Bircher Muesli

1 heaping tbsp rolled oats
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp cream
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 apple
 1 tbsp strawberries 

Soak the oats and water in a bowl. (The recipe says to let this soak overnight, and then do the rest in the morning. I just mix everything together at night, so it is ready as soon as you get up. You can do it either way, up to you.)
Stir the cream, honey and lemon juice into the oat mixture. Grate the apple and quickly mix it into the oats. Chop strawberries finely, or if you are like me and used the grater of your food processor to grate the apple, you can just grate the berries too. Add to the oat mixture. 
You can add blackberries, raspberries, raisins or chopped nuts if you would like. 

The recipe says to serve with brown sugar nd cream, but it really isn't necessary, it is delicious just as it is!

Serves one.
Enjoy!
