super berry bircher muesli

recipe  11th May 2015 by

The great thing about bircher muesli (pronounced “berker” muesli) is that you can make a big batch, and as long as you keep it refrigerated, you can enjoy it as an instant breakfast every day of the week.

As long as the raw ingredients are oats, milk, juice and grated apple, you can add pretty much whatever you like to it: flaxseed, nuts, dried fruit, cacao nibs, spices… You can also experiment with liquid ratios to get the consistency you want.

This is by far my favourite breakfast at the moment and ensures a super speedy morning preparation, even for the ‘too busy for breakfast’ crowd! The bonus of soaking the nuts beforehand is it partially digests outside of the body, giving your digestive system a helping hand.

  • 200 g whole oats
  • 150 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 150 ml orange juice
  • 1 soft dried apple
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 punnet heart healthy nuts
  • 1 punnet omega booster seeds
  • 1 punnet graze bountiful berries
  • cinnamon
  • greek yoghurt
  • raspberries


In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients (except the yoghurt and raspberries). You can crush the nuts into smaller pieces if you prefer.

Allow to soak for at least an hour until the oats have softened, or overnight. The mixture will thicken up once soaked.

Scoop your soaked oats out of the jar into a bowl and serve with as much yoghurt as you like. You can mix it in or dollop in on top. Top with raspberries and enjoy!
