Homemade Bircher Muesli

bircher muesli recipe

I tried Bircher Muesli the other day for the first time (bit behind.. I know) and okay okay, I get what all the fuss is about. Its basically like a dessert for breakfast!

I decided to make it at home, it was easy to make and completly customaizable. It required basically NO effort and I pre made it the night before; you could make a batch for the week and it would be no hassle, cheap and delicious.

Homemade Bircher Muesli    serves 2

Ingredients: 2 cups muesli, 1/2 cup apple juice, 1 cup yoghurt – I used greek, a pinch of cinnamon, teaspoon of vanilla essence, fruit for the toppings. I used shaved coconut, blueberries, strawberries and goji berries. 

  1. Remove all nuts from muesli and store aside overnight. We will re-add them in the morning so they give a bit of a crunch. Soak 2 cups muesli in 1/2 cup apple juice and 1/2 cup yoghurt. Add a pinch of cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. Mix so all the muesli gets covered, then cover bowl and place in fridge overnight. (1 hour will actually do it if making in the morning) 
  2. In the morning, re-add the nuts, add other 1/2 cup yoghurt and a dash of apple juice, then sprinkle with coconut and arrange fruit! Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top if you are a huge fan (see, I told you.. easy as pie) 

You can add anything – grated apple? go for it, passion fruit? YES! Whatever floats your muesli boat. 

It looks so nice with some micro herb mint on top also, but I forgot to buy some (secretly devastated). It made my early morning this morning a bit easier knowing I had this in my fridge ready to go. That will get my morning routine going too. 


I will be maing this regulary, and adding everything I can get my hands on. Whats some secret goodies you can add to make this healthier? Or yummier?
