How To Make Blueberry Bircher Muesli: Overnight Oatmeal Recipe:

First developed by a Swiss doctor back in the 1890’s, this easy, super healthy breakfast can be mixed together the night before, then left in the fridge to soak in a plastic container or smaller individual ones if that suits you better.

Stir in grated apple and top generously with blueberries, honey and nuts and you’re good to go.

Serves 6

Preparation time: 10 minutes


500g (1lb 2oz) tub Greek yogurt

200g (7oz) rolled oats

40g (11/2oz) wheat germ

40g (11/2oz) desiccated coconut

50g (2oz) hazelnuts, toasted and roughly chopped

200ml (7fl oz) pressed (cloudy) apple juice

To Serve Per Portion:

½ Granny Smith apple, cored but not peeled, coarsely grated

50g (2oz) Chilean blueberries

1 tsp runny honey

Little ground cinnamon

Few extra chopped hazelnuts, optional


1.) Mix the yogurt, oats and wheat germ in a bowl then stir in the coconut, toasted hazelnuts and apple juice.

2.) Transfer to a plastic container, clip on the lid and chill overnight in the fridge.

3.) When ready to serve, stir in grated apple and a few blueberries then spoon into dishes, top with extra blueberries, a drizzle of honey, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon and a few extra nuts, if liked.

4.) The remaining soaked muesli will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days, just add a little apple juice if needed, as the oats will continue to swell.

Cook’s Tip –

1.) If you are not a fan of nuts or have a nut allergy then simply leave them out. 

2.) If you are allergic to yogurt made with cow’s milk then use goat’s milk or soak in soya milk instead.
