Dr. Bircher-Benner's original Birchermu"esli contained only oats, water, lemon juice, condensed milk, fruit and nuts. Nowadays, more dairy products are added; sometimes even huge swirls of cream are piped on top--which must somewhat upset the balance good doctor was striving for. It is a highly nutritious calorie bomb, not so much a breakfast dish as a meal in itself, and is often enjoyed for lunch or supper with good bread and a glass of milk.
Stir together all the ingredients and let the Birchermu"esli stand for about 15 minutes. Other fresh fruit may be added if wished.
The packaged mix consists mostly of rolled oats, with some dried fruits, raisins, and grated nuts. It may or may not be sweetened with a little brown sugar.
If you live in Southern California, Trader Joe's is a good source.
