Bircher Muesli

By Friday, February 07, 2014 , , ,

This is a more traditional version of the popular overnight oats using grated apple to add a dimension of sweetness and a more chunky, rather than creamy texture. This is cool and refreshing on a hot summers day, but it's equally as delicious in winter. You can also experiment with adding in dried fruit of your choice, such as raisins, and adding flavours like cinnamon, ginger or vanilla/almond extract. I like using a little full fat coconut milk for a creamier texture, but you can always scale the amount up or down depending on your tastes.


Serves 1

You will need:

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 medium apple, coarsely grated
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup full fat coconut milk

Simply combine the above in sealed container and shake to combine, then leave overnight to thicken. Serve with your choice of fruit, coconut yoghurt, nuts or seeds.

  1. Will the recipe still come out well if we use all almond milk?

    1. Oatmeal is cooked, bircher muesli is raw and soaked overnight

    2. I see, thanks! Is Bircher made from oats too? And you soak it in water or milk?

  4. Could I use muesli instead of the oats? Or maybe a mixture of muesli and oats? I think it'd taste better xx

  5. Will creamed coconut work as a substitute instead of coconut milK? I assume you talk about the thick part of the milk

    1. Sure! Coconut cream is just a thicker version of coconut milk with less added water :)
