Berry Bircher Muesli

Another amazing time-saving breakfast.

This muesli will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for 2-3 days.

This Berry Bircher Muesli breakfast is only sweetened by the apple juice, nuts and vanilla extract, so it’s great when you are cutting sugars from your regular diet.  But I promise it still tastes great.

I know that at first, this looks like a long list of ingredients, but it honestly only takes a few minutes to make up.

Berry Over Night Oats
Serves 2
  • 90 g rolled oats
  • 50g mixed berries (mashed)
  • 25g mixed seeds
  • 100 ml cold milk (skimmed, soy, nut or rice)
  • 40 ml apple juice
  • 50g natural yogurt
  • 1 small apple, cored and roughly grated
  • 1tsp honey
  • 1 drop vanilla extract
  • 10g raisins
  • 30 g walnuts


Method for making the Berry Bircher Muesli or Overnight Oats as it is often called.

Put the oats and seeds in a large mixing bowl and add the milk and apple juice, mashed berries, raisins and nuts

Stir and leave aside for at least 10 minutes to soften or leave them to soak overnight in the fridge, which will soften them up a bit more. I love how you can choose your texture here, do you want it chewy or soft and creamy…the longer you leave the mix to merge and mingle the more creamy it will be. The nuts and seeds still add a nice bit of crunch regardless of how long you leave it ( ok if you leave it a week even these little guys will be soft and creamy…but you get my drift)

When ready to serve, add the yoghurt, grated apple, honey and vanilla.

We add the honey and vanilla at the end as you can add to taste, you might find that the berries and apple juice are sweet enough, in which case leave the honey and vanilla out.  But berries, especially if using frozen berries, can be sharp and so it’s nice to round off this sharpness a little.

Stir and transfer to serving bowls.
