  • Easy

Bircher muesli is a Swis invention from the turn of the last century. It consists of rolled oats, apple, milk and other ingredients to shake it up - we've used chia seeds, yogurt and some extra fruit. This is best when it's left to soak overnight, so you'll have a healthy, fuss-free breakfast ready to go in the morning.



  • porridge oats 200g
  • pumpkin seeds 15g
  • dried apricots or dates 20g, diced
  • raisins, sultanas or dried cranberries 30g
  • sunflower seeds 10g
  • chia seeds 2 tbsp 
  • semi-skimmed milk or almond milk 600ml


  • apple ¼, cored and grated 
  • blueberries 1 tbsp
  • raspberries 2 tbsp 
  • banana ¼, sliced 
  • natural yogurt or milk to serve


  • Step 1

    Mix all the muesli ingredients together, cover and leave in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight, until the milk has been absorbed. When you’re ready to eat, stir in the apple, top with the fruits and a splash more milk or 1 tbsp natural yogurt.
