Recipe for Birchermuesli
Dr.med. Maximilian Bircher-Benner originally called his diet apple dish "Spys". Soon it gained the vernacular name "Bircher muesli". Today, Bircher muesli is world-renowned.
The original Bircher muesli, as introducd for the first time by Dr. Maximilian Bircher-Benner, has remained the tried and tested and best diet food based on many years of experience. In 1926, Dr. Maximilian Bircher-Benner developed the original Dr. Bircherraffel (the Bircher grater) for grating the apples.
Bircher muesli: with almond or sesame puree for one person:
1 tbp (8g) oats
3 tbsp water
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp almond or sesame puree (Nuxo or organic almond puree)
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp hazelnuts or almonds, grated.
Soak the oats for 12 hours. Using a whisk, combine the lemon juice, puree, water and honey to a creamy consistency, add the oats and grate the apple direct into the mixture using the Bircher grater while frequently stirring so that the Bircher muesli remains appetizingly white. Sprinkle the nuts over the top and serve immediately- never leave to sit
