Blueberry Bircher Muesli | How To Make

Blueberry Bircher Muesli: Overnight Oatmeal Recipe. Hello friends. Are you looking for some tasty breakfast recipes? Blueberry Bircher Muesli, anyone?

Creating Blueberry Bircher Muesli, an overnight oatmeal recipe, is a delightful way to prepare a delicious and nutritious breakfast that requires minimal morning effort.

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.

To make this wholesome dish, start by combining rolled oats with yogurt in a bowl. Add a generous portion of fresh blueberries, which not only infuse the muesli with antioxidants but also bring a burst of natural sweetness.

Grated apples and a touch of honey can further enhance the flavour, while also adding a refreshing crunch and extra natural sweetness to the mix.

How To Make Blueberry Bircher Muesli: Overnight Oatmeal Recipe:

Mix all the ingredients thoroughly, cover the bowl, and refrigerate it overnight. This allows the oats to soften and absorb the flavors, resulting in a creamy, satisfying, and nutrient-packed breakfast.

The next morning, you can top it with more fresh blueberries, nuts, or seeds for added texture and a burst of freshness. Blueberry Bircher Muesli is not only a delicious and convenient way to kickstart your day but also a wholesome choice for those seeking a balanced and nutritious breakfast option.

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

  • 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-

  • If you are not a fan of nuts or have a nut allergy then simply leave them out. 
  • If you are allergic to yogurt made with cow’s milk then use goat’s milk or soak in soya milk instead.
