This morning the Egan family tucked into a delicious breakfast of Bircher muesli with pear and blueberries. The recipe was from Bill Granger‘s new cookbook ‘Bill cooks for kids‘ and incredibly easy to do as you can prepare most of it in advance. Still suffering with jet lag (we were all awake at 5:30 am) this was just the thing we needed.
200g rolled oats
375ml pear juice (I used apple)
2 pears, skin left on and grated
125g plain yoghurt
4 Tbsp toasted chopped almonds
Put the rolled oats in a bowl with the pear juice and leave to soak for 1 hour, or overnight, in the fridge. Add the grated pear and yoghurt and mix well. Spoon the muesli into serving bowls and top each each with toasted almonds & blueberries.
