German Bircher Muesli Recipe

I had a delicious Breakfast at Cafe Dressler in Berlin.
The Service was superb and so was this Bircher Muesli... I just had to take a Picture before I ate the whole lot.
This is so healthy and will keep your Energy Levels up until Lunch!

Bircher Muesli:
1 medium -coarse chopped apple(red or golden delicious work well)
1/2 cup raisins (if you want to...I don't like raisins myself)
1 banana in 1/4 inch slices
1 orange, chopped
1 cup muesli mix ( see recipe below) or as much as you need to get desired thickness
1 non-fat fruit yougurt (you can use non-fat milk or even soy-milk instead

1 lb. rolled oats
1 lb Barley flakes
4 oz. Mixed nuts, chopped
4 oz. Mixed dried fruit

Bircher Muesli;
Mix together all ingredients,and from here on its your choice of other additions.
One cup of Strawberries, peaches, raspberries, blueberries, nectarines, even mango, plums, pears,pitted cherries. Whatever fruits happen to be in season.

Put the oats in a bowl & stir in the remaining ingredients until evenly mixed. Store in an airtight container.

Some people prefer muesli thick enough so that spoon will stand up straight if stuck in; others like it thinner. Adding more liquid, and letting it sit for a bit will produce a thinner, creamier Muesli
