This nourishing coconut bircher muesli is jam packed with dietary fibre, protein, beneficial fats, vitamin C, zinc and antioxidants. Oats are a great source of resistant starch. This is a type of fermentable prebiotic fibre that provides fuel for the good bacteria in the gut and ensures the health and integrity of the gut lining. Oats also contains beta-glucan, a type of fibre that helps support cardiovascular health and lowers cholesterol levels.

1 ½ cup rolled oats
¼ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup hemp seeds
¼ cup flaked almonds
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup coconut water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large organic green apple, shredded with skin on
1 kiwi fruit
Coconut yoghurt, coconut flakes, custard apple or berries.
- Place oats, seeds, almonds, coconut milk, coconut water and vanilla in an airtight container and mix until well combined. Place in the fridge sealed overnight.
