Bircher Muesli was developed around 1900's by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner for his patients and is still a very popular breakfast throughout Europe.

We have made some minor tweaks to this easy to make original overnight oats recipe that makes it even more delicious & healthy. Bircher Muesli is an excellent breakfast to keep you fuller for longer. 


Preparation time: 10-15 min
Serves: 4-6


Night before
  • 2 cups of rolled or quick oats. We love the Scottish Oats for this recipe (available in any supermarket)
  • 2 cups of milk (semi-skimmed or whole for extra creaminess)
  • 2 apples- grated with the peel
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice (fresh is preferred) 
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Optional extras (to make it nutty)- handful mix of flaked almonds, raisins, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries. (Tip- if you don't have flaked almonds, you can also use crushed almonds) 
  • Tip- You can leave the night-before mix for 2-3 days in the fridge. 

Next morning

  • 1.5 cups plain yoghurt
  • 1/2 tsp of Clove Extract or you can use 1 tsp of 7 Spice Extract if clove is not your thing
  • Optional: 2 Bananas and any seasonal fruit like Blueberries & Raspberries 


  • Put oats into a large bow
  • Add milk, grated apples, apple juice, lemon juice, honey & nuts
  • Refrigerate the mix overnight
  • In the morning, add yoghurt & clove or cinnamon extract to the mix 
  • Mix well
  • Serve in a bowl. Add slices of banana and fruits on the top
  • Tip: have this Bircher Muesli during lunch and you won't feel peckish all day!
