This is a VLF basic birchermuesli:
3/4 c wheat germ
3 c quick cooking rolled oats
1 c dried organic currants or raisins
2/3 c finely chopped dried organic unsulphered apricots
3/4 c or less date, or brown, sugar
Mix thoroughly; stores well up to a month.
Variations: substitute wheat, rice, barley, rye, soy, or millet flakes for
oats. Or, replace fruit with dehydrated dates, apples, peaches, or cherries.
Apple muesli is my favorite variation; for one serving:
Soak 1 T rolled oats in 3 T water for 12 hrs (quick cooking oats, soaked 1/2
hr, can be substituted). In separate bowl, combine 1 T lemon juice with 3 T
of the best organic yogurt available and sweeten with 1 T honey. Stir until
mix is smooth and add pre-soaked oats. Next grate 1 unpeeled apple into
bowl. Finally, sprinkle basic mix on top.
