Blueberry Bircher muesli …

Blueberry Bircher muesli. Overnight oatmeal.

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


To serve per portion:


  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.
