It’s been a little while since I was here sharing my shenanigans with you and after a trip to my hometown, some tears and a lot of laughs I’m back! And with this new start what better to share than a breakfast treat. Breakfast is after all the best way to begin the new start we’re given every single morning. And before it gets too cold I wanted to share this chilled yet warming recipe for a bircher muesli parfait with sea buckthorn and ginger. And a whole bunch of apple and cinnamon power to break us into this new chilly season.
In the recipe I’m trying a product that is new to me from Love Arctic, a brand based in our neighbouring country Finland. They specialise in ‘arctic superfoods’ or as I like to call it berry powders. Although that’s their speciality the whole food enthusiast in me was excited to try the flax seed mixes they also make where they mix one of their powders with cracked flax seed. Personally I eat flax seed every day sprinkled on my breakfast because of its healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. Saara from Love Arctic thinks this is one of their product’s best advantages and apparently since it’s grown in an arctic climate under the midnight sun it has a higher nutritional value than most flax seed.
SEA BUCKTHORN + GINGER BIRCHER MUESLI PARFAIT
YIELDS: 1 serving / TIME: 10 min + soaking time
For the bircher muesli:
4 tbsp rolled oats
1,5 tbsp sea buckthorn flax seed mix by Love Arctic
1 tsp chia seeds
1/4 cup sweet apple, grated
3/4 tsp ginger, grated
1/2 cup plant milk, I used oat milk
3 tbsp plant yoghurt, optional
Cinnamon granola or other granola of your choice
Place all of the bircher muesli ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Or simply put all the ingredients in a mason jar and shake until well combined.
Leave over night in the refrigerator to set and give it a stir or a shake before layering with apple sauce and granola the next morning.
Top it off with a couple of raspberries for freshness and a pop of colour.
