Gluten Free Muesli
Gluten Free Recipes
Two delicious variations of gluten free muesli: Bircher Muesli with endless variations and a crunchy nut and seed muesli.
Bircher muesli in its original form was little more than oats and grated apple. Thankfully, it has evolved into something with infinite variations. This one is gluten-free, made with cooked rice instead of oats. If you like, add a teaspoon or two of protein powder to the muesli or serve with a small protein powder drink for a more substantial start to the day.
This recipe is gluten free, dairy free and detox friendly.
1 large Granny Smith apple, unpeeled, halved, cored and grated
1-2/3 cup cooked medium-grain rice
6-1/2 oz carton vanilla soy yogurt
1/3 cup soy or rice milk
2 tablespoons sultanas
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons psyllium seed husk
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
2 tablespoons raw pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)
1/3 cup fresh blueberries (or other fresh fruit), to serve
Combine apple, rice, yogurt, milk, sultanas, lemon juice and psyllium in a bowl. Mix well. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight to soak.
Before serving, stir almonds and pepitas into the rice mixture and spoon into bowls. Top with fruit and serve. Serves 2.
Note: Muesli mixture will keep in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 2 days. Add the nuts and seeds just before serving.
Nut and Seed Muesli
This Nut and Seed Muesli is rich in both fiber and nutrients, so just a small serving will keep you satisfied. This recipe uses a selection of preservative free dried fruit - apple, strawberries, wild figs and pineapple - but you can use any preservative free dried fruit of your choice. Serve with soy or rice milk and a dollop of soy yogurt if you like, topped with some fresh fruit such as berries, mango or banana. If you can eat oats (they are not gluten-free), you could use 1 cup of oats in place of puffed rice. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free and detox friendly!

1 cup puffed rice
1 cup whole buckwheat
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup flaked almonds
