Bircher muesli is never going to win any ‘most beautiful breakfast’ awards. It’s not got the kerb appeal of a tall stack of pancakes dripping with syrup, or a perfectly poached egg set on a bed of smashed avocado, or even an artfully arranged, multi-coloured fruit platter. But, despite it being perhaps less Instagram-friendly than we’d like, for ease and health and taste and so many other things besides, I find I’m hard pressed to do better than a bowl of Bircher in the morning.

There are countless ways to make it (apple juice, or milk? A short ten minute soak, or overnight?), but this is how I like mine…

I N G R E D I E N T S  +  I N S T R U C T I O N S ::
200g rolled oats
100g dried fruits + nuts (I used shredded coconut, chopped dates + almonds)
1tbsp chia seeds
1 whole apple

- Combine the oats, nuts, chia seeds and dried fruits, and store in an airtight jar for future breakfasting.

- Put a few tablespoons of the oat mixture into a bowl, and cover over with milk (cow’s, almond, coconut- any will do!). Set aside for at least ten minutes (the perfect time to brew a coffee), or cover and place in the fridge overnight if you’re prepping in advance.

- Coarsely grate the apple and stir through the oat mixture, with a little extra milk if you’ve left the oats to soak for a while. Enjoy at leisure, or eat at breakneck speed before dashing out of the door to catch a train. It’ll be just as delicious either way.

    I love bircher muesli! It’s the perfect alternative to porridge when it’s warm in the Summer. That said, I do eat porridge all year round, but it’s nice to switch it up a little. This looks so good! Coconuts and dates is a great combination.

    I like my bircher soaked overnight. In winter you can zap it in the microwave for a few seconds to take the edge off it (or take it out of the fridge, do the school run and then come back to it as I often do). My ultimate bircher is The Delaunay’s in London. Best breakfast ever!

    I love Bircher müsli! To me it is not very important that my breakfast looks beautiful or “instagrammable” ;) but it’s all about being yummy and keeping me full for a good amount of time. And to be honest, I only achieve this with oats! Your recipe looks so delicious, I’m definitely going to try it out! At the moment I’m soaking Chia seeds and oats overnight in my fridge and chopping up some fruits I have around on top of it in the morning.

    Personally I find muesli to be a pretty attractive breakfast. I like soaking my muesli and oats, etc, overnight best. Then adding lots of colourful fruit! Perfectly intagrammable. :)

    You can’t go wrong with Bircher muesli, it’s definetly Summer’s answer to porridge for me. And i’m the weird gal who’s always loved soggy cereal so this is right up my pipe!

    We make ours dried mix like you and then soak overnight with almond milk. In the morning i add more almond milk, a mashed banana and cacao nibs. Mmmmm!!!
