Claire wow’d us a few months ago with her Bircher Muesli recipe, which has become a welcome addition to my breakfast options. However always one to rise to a foodie challenge a Fussy Foodie reader wanted a truly gluten free bircher with no oats, small challenge there as the main ingredient is oats. I have been thinking about it over the last week and think I have found a solution to the Gluten Free Bircher challenge.
Using Gluten Free Porridge from Kelkin which is a mix of millet flakes and rice flakes, this provides the base of the Gluten Free Bircher.
For one serving you will need:
1/2 cup of Kelkin Gluten Free Porridge
1 cup juice ( I used pineapple juice )
1 tbsp dessicated coconut
Small handful of dried fruit and seeds
1/2 apple or pear, grated
2 tbsp of soya yogurt (or other yoghurt)
Slices of kiwi (or fruit of your choice)
Gluten Free Bircher Recipe:
Put the gluten free porridge flakes, coconut, and juice into a bowl. Mix together, cover and leave in the fridge to soak overnight. If you are making larger volumes you need twice as much juice to flakes.
In the morning stir the mixture and if needed add a small amout of juice to loosen. Grate the apple/pear and add to the mixture, then stir in the yogurt, dried fruit and seeds. Mix until all the ingredients are combined. Serve into individual bowls, add slices of your seasonal fruit and enjoy!
The ingredients can be adapted to suit your personal tastes – a whole array of dried fruits, nuts, seeds and fresh fruits can be used to create different flavours, I am really pleased with first Gluten Free Bircher attempt and the texture works much better than I expected, so if you need a gluten free tasty treat for your breakfast then give this ago.
