Müsli was first invented by a Swiss doctor called Dr. Bircher-Benner, who served it at his health clinic around 1900. Bircher was convinced that a diet rich in fruits, grains, and nuts was essential to improving the health of his patients.
Through the merging of Eastern and Western cuisine in contemporary food culture, new health benefits can be derived from Müsli, making it even healthier than 100 years ago.
As such, we have combined classical Müsli recipes with Amazake, the East Asian fermented sweet rice paste. By adding Amazake to the oats and letting them soak in it overnight, the oats slightly ferment and their texture becomes a lot softer. This turns the müsli into an ultimate health booster as Amazake is rich in vitamins and contains probiotics that are really good for the gut. The combination of soymilk and Amazake also provides for a lactose free and vegan alternative to many of the traditional versions.
Ingredients for two
- 150 g whole oat flakes
- 50 g Amazake
- 300 g soy milk
- 1 Apple (½ of it sliced, the other ½ grated)
- Nuts (e.g walnuts or almonds)
- Goji berries
- Optional: Cinnamon
Soak the oats in the soymilk and the Amazake and let it ferment in the fridge overnight.
The next morning, grate half of the apple into the mixture. Slice the second half of the apple and add. Then roast the nuts, chop them into small pieces and add them. In case it is not sweet enough, you can add an additional amount of Amazake.
Enjoy it with a cup of coffee and begin your day with a filling, nutritious, and tasty breakfast.
