Pear Bircher Muesli (gf, vegan)

This simple pear bircher muesli is so easy to make and really delicious.  It’s one of the few breakfasts that I will swap for toast – and that’s saying something because in my mind, toast is pretty hard to beat.

Although the original Swiss recipe calls for grated apple, I find that pear is more subtle and soothing in the morning.  It’s a ‘cooling’ fruit full of fibre and goes well with the creamy oats.  And then the raisins just add a nice little bit of sweetness.  If you’re after a balanced, deliciously satisfying and filling breakfast then you’ll love this – its like nourishing food for the soul.
