Ingredients

  • 2 small pears, grated
  • 10 tbsp (60g) rolled oat
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 200g Greek yogurt, plus 4 tbsp
  • 5 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey, plus extra to serve (optional)
  • 200g cherries, halved and pitted
  • 2 squares dark chocolate

Method

  1. Combine the pears, oats, cacao, yogurt, milk and maple syrup in a bowl. Divide between four bowls (or containers if you’re taking it to work).

  2. Top each serving with some cherries, 1 tbsp yogurt and a little extra maple syrup, if you like. Finely grate the chocolate over the Bircher, giving each serving a light dusting. Eat straight away or chill in the fridge for up to 2 days.
