Carrot bircher muesli

Styling: Carlie Monasso. Photography: Bec Hudson


This is one of my favourite go to breakfasts.   As strange as the idea of a vegetable in muesli may seem –  this tastes absolutely delicious, I promise! This recipe is best made the night before.  I love waking up knowing I have waiting for me after my morning exercise.

I’ve quinoa flakes and buckwheat, both are gluten free and a great source of protein, carbohydrates and fibre.  I love the crunchy texture the buckwheat provides.

You will need
1 carrot, grated
1 cup quinoa flakes
1/2 cup buckwheat groats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1  tsp vanilla extract or powder
1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
1 cup milk (I use almond or coconut milk)
Small handful walnuts

Optional toppings
Pepita seeds
Shredded coconut
Coconut cream or yoghurt (I use Coyo) or natural/full fat organic yoghurt
Goji berries

What to do
1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl, soak  overnight.
2. Serve in a bowl top with toppings and enjoy.  Yes, it really is that simple!

Serves 2-3
