What is Bircher muesli, who created it and what are its benefits?
Bircher Muesli was created last century by a Swiss doctor named Maximilian Bircher-Benner to include in the diet of his patients and inspired by a shepherd’s dinner on one of his hikes in the Alps.
Bircher’s original muesli consists of mixing oat flakes with fruit, nuts, seeds or juice and covering them with milk and leaving this mixture in the fridge overnight for breakfast the next day. The result is a consistent and very nutritious mixture as the cereals contain complex carbohydrates, proteins, B vitamins, iron and fibre, the fruit adds antioxidants and vitamins and the nuts also add more protein and omega 3 oil.
The Story Behind Emma’s Muesli Recipe
I make the finest, tastiest muesli using top quality ingredients and extra virgin olive oil, a key ingredient of one of the healthiest diet, the Mediterranean diet.
Emma’s Muesli recipe is a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and fibre.
For many years, I tested different cereals, fruits, seeds, nuts, sweeteners and oils. I used a selection of ingredients and then added a Mediterranean touch, using the finest extra virgin olive oil arbequina from my own country of origin, Spain. With the knowledge gained through my research and managing a blog of recipes www.laencimeraazul.com , I created a unique variety of delicious healthy Artisanal Muesli and Artisanal Granola.
When choosing my ingredients, I pay special attention to the nutritional value, quality and flavour of each individual ingredient. There is no added sugar in my products except the muesli made with chocolate and made with my home made cakes and biscuits. I combine ingredients resulting in high quality, delicious tasting, easy to digest Müesli and Granola.
I have several varieties of Müesli and Granola including Gluten Free Muesli, Vegan Muesli, gluten free granola for you to enjoy and have a balanced diet. I have also sweet recipes with different types of chocolate, home made cakes, cookies and other exciting new recipes to come.
All recipes contain: fine bio oat flakes, oat flakes without gluten, bio spelt flakes with toasty taste, bio amaranth in the gluten free version, bio ground lin seeds, bio chia seeds, bio sunflower seeds, bio sesame seeds, Spanish extra virgin olive oil from Arbequina olives which gives the sweet and a slightly spicy taste.
