My Favourite On-The-Go Breakfast – Bircher Muesli

Bircher Muesli

This is a healthy version of Bircher Muesli – hard to find! Most Birchers found in cafes are loaded with sugar and cream! This is a quick and easy recipe, perfect  for all the busy bees on the go. You can make a big batch and refrigerate for up to a week. Time friendly recipe I say!

My version is loaded with protein, fibre and good fats- the vital nutrients at breakfast time for blood sugar control.

Remove the yoghurt (or use coconut yoghurt!) if you are lactose intolerant – the recipe will work fine.


Serves: Makes 3-4 servings


  • 1 cup rolled oats (organic is best)
  • 1 cup water/milk for soaking. Traditional soaking is in juice -not necessary!
  • 1 grated green apple
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds/pumpkin seeds (or both)
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup goji berries/dried cranberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Handful strawberries/berries
  • 2 tbsp greek natural yoghurt
  • 1 tsp raw honey/maple syrup/stevia (optional)


  1. Soak the oats for 6-8hrs or over night in enough water/milk to cover the oats
  2. Mix the soaked oats and the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl – texture must be thick but smooth
  3. Top it with fresh mint, sprinkle of cinnamon and homemade granola. Add a serving of pea/whey protein for an extra protein hit!
  4. Refrigerate for up to a week

    I made this but soaked it in fresh coconut water – I found that worked really well. My mum has also been making some with a touch of freshly grated ginger and lime juice – it’s amazing!

    Hi Jessica. What is the serving portion for your recipe – is it for 2? Looking forward to trying it here in SA. Have found most of the ingredients.

    • Hi Nicola! Yes, this serves 2!

  • Louise

    Can you make a weeks worth at a time and store in the fridge? Any type of milk should be using?

    • Hi Louise! You could definitely make it and enjoy for 3 days, however I wouldn’t keep the same batch for a week. Any milk will work! I like to use unsweetened, organic almond milk 🙂
