Coconut Bircher Muesli

The love affair with the humble whole rolled organic oat continues.

Our Bircher Muesli recipe is so simple to make, if you haven’t been making Bircher before you are going to want to make it a lot from now on.

At it’s core Bircher is really just soaked oats… but this simple beginning can be the gateway to a multitude of flavour and taste sensations.  Soaking the oats and seeds makes them more easily digestible and also means that the nutrients are readily bio available (i.e your body can use them easily).

I really like to mix it up and have so many varieties of  Bircher Muesli recipes now that clients at The Body Retreat don’t know what to expect until they sit down to breakfast.  Coconut, Cardamon & Peach thats a favourite or how about Apple, Walnut & Honey a classic but always well received…or keeping it very simple just plain old Blueberry Bircher.

serves 4
  • 1 cup of organic rolled oats
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 25 gms coconut flakes
  • 40 gms mixed seeds
  • 50 gms whole unblanched almonds
  • 2 tbps ground flaxseed
  • 1 apple

While this Bircher Muesli recipe is for four it will keep in the fridge for 3 – 4 days so it’s a perfect make ahead time saver of a healthy breakfast.  Make this up on a Sunday night and you can kiss breakfast worries good bye.


As always …super simple.

Get a large mixing bowl and add the oats, seeds, flaxseed and coconut flakes.

Now roughly chop the almonds and add to the bowl.

Add the coconut milk and mix thoroughly.

If you are serving this bircher muesli the next day and you will use all four portions then now you can go ahead and grate in the whole apple, including the skin.  Mix again and cover and pop into the fridge.

When you are ready to serve give the mix and good stir and if it is a little think then add a splash of coconut water or almond milk to create a better consistency that you like.

As you can see from the picture above I have topped my Bircher Muesli with a sprinkle of flaxseed and a few chopped strawberries for added freshness and nutritional punch, but you can add any fruit you might like ( add about a tablespoon per person)
