Today I am sharing a recipe for a healthy breakfast dish: Blueberry & Hazelnut Bircher Muesli made with MOMA Wild Berry pot.
I was asked by MOMA to share my breakfast tips and a recipe as part of their new campaign “Start Your Morning More Awesome”. The secret for making my morning the best part of my day is to take the time to prepare breakfast and sit down to enjoy it.
I am definitely a morning person so getting out of bed in the morning is rarely a struggle. What makes me want to to get up, of course, is the thought of having a tasty breakfast and cup of coffee. I never grab breakfast on the go or skip it, as I believe breakfast should be a well balanced meal, full of nutrients to start my body and keep my energies up throughout the morning. That’s why I like to start my day with bircher muesli.
I mix the contents of a MOMA Wild Berry Bircher Muesli with hazelnuts, linseeds, cocoa powder, then top it up with fresh blueberries and a drizzle of maple syrup. Oats are great for breakfast, because they give a long gradual release of energy, which helps to keep your blood sugar levels stable and keeps you full for long.
I usually have a big breakfast that fills me up, so I accompany my bircher muesli bowl with a slice of sourdough bread and peanut butter (made with 100% peanuts, no palm oil, no added salt) and a cup of coffee. I prepare filter coffee with the Aeropress, using light-roasted, freshly-ground single origin beans.
I like the ritual of preparing breakfast at home, and then sitting down at the table to enjoy it with my husband. Once we are out of the door and the day officially starts, it’s a race to get our work done, run errands, and meet friends. It’s hard to find another moment of calm during our busy lives, so I always make sure I start my day with half an hour at the dining table, consciously eating my breakfast.
Here’s my recipe for Blueberry & Hazelnut Bircher Muesli prepared using MOMA Bircher Muesli Wild Berry.
Serves 2-3 people.
- 2x 140g MOMA Bircher Muesli Wild Berry
- 1 tsp linseeds
- 1 tbsp hazelnuts, roughly chopped
- 1 tsp cacao powder
- 1 tbsp natural yoghurt
- 50g fresh blueberries
- handful of hazelnuts
- 1 tsp maple syrup
Combine MOMA bircher muesli with the linseeds, chopped hazelnuts and cacao. Stir well.
Divide between serving bowls, top with a scoop of yoghurt, some blueberries and hazelnuts. Drizzle with maple syrup.
