Buckwheat Groat Bircher

A new take on the classic oat Bircher muesli.  This dish is an overnight dish which can be finished quickly in the morning.


60g buckwheat groats (activated – see note #1)
2 – 3 tablespoons of your favourite seeds (try pumpkin and sunflower seeds)
125g full-fat probiotic natural yoghurt
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus extra to serve if wished
1 teaspoon raw honey
1 large apple, grated with skin on
Toasted desiccated coconut to serve
Favourite berries to serve
Soak the groats overnight. In the morning place the drained and rinsed groats in a bowl and mix in the rest of the ingredients except the desiccated coconut and berries.
Sprinkle over the desiccated coconut and top with your favourite fruit.

Buckwheat Groat Bircher

I often soak the groats during the day and prepare the bowls in the evening, ready for the morning.  This Bircher keeps well in the fridge for a few days.

My husband loves this for breakfast, as well as  Coconut and Chia Bircher.    Both come from The Art of Eating Well by Hemsley and Hemsley.  It is a very satisfying and filling dish.

Note #1 Most pseudocereals, pulses, nuts and seeds benefit from being ‘activated’ by soaking for 8 hours or overnight. Soaking them increases the nutrients available and makes them easier to digest.   As a rough guideline, soak in double the volume of filtered water using a glass bowl, loosely draped with a teatowel. When soaking pseudocereals, the addition of 1 tbsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar is recommended for every 250 ml of water.
