This muesli recipe is based on a traditional Bircher recipe. The key to its irresistible deliciousness is soaking all the ingredients overnight. Sounds weird, tastes fab! This recipe is also perfect to make in bulk as it will store well in an airtight container.


Muesli with a Twist

  • 4 handfuls of porridge oats
  • A handful each of mixed seeds - sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, linseed
  • 2 handfuls of nuts, any you like (toasted hazelnuts are good!)
  • A handful of desiccated coconut (no added sugar - just check the label to be sure)

To serve:

  • 1 apple, coarsley grated
  • Milk, or hazelnut, coconut or almond milk to cover
  • Natural yoghurt (leave this out if you prefer a vegan/dairy-free breakfast)
  • A handful of fresh berries - blueberries, raspberries, strawberries

Gluten Advice:

Pure oats are naturally gluten free. However, they are often contaminated with wheat. If you are sensitive to gluten it is best to check that the oats you are buying are certified as ‘pure’ or ‘gluten free’.


Make more and store! This recipe is perfect to make in bulk as it will store well in an airtight container, ready to add the apple and milk to when you require.

How to make Muesli with a Twist

1. Combine the dry ingredients in an airtight container.

2. The night before you want to have this for breakfast, put a portion of the muesli mix into a bowl and add the grated apple. Cover with your milk of choice and leave overnight in the fridge.

3. Next morning, give it a stir to loosen the mixture before topping with natural yoghurt and some berries for a nutritious and delicious breakfast.
