What is Bircher Muesli?
Bircher Muesli is a traditional Swiss breakfast invented in the 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner. It is made by soaking rolled oats in a liquid (such as milk or yogurt) overnight, along with grated apple, nuts, and other ingredients like seeds, dried fruits, and sweeteners. The mixture is then topped with fresh fruit and served cold. Bircher muesli is often considered a healthy and nutritious breakfast option, as it is high in fiber and protein, and low in added sugars.
My Bircher Muesli Recipe Notes
I really love this breakfast. I feel like I am making a good choice that supports my health, but it also happens to be completely delicious. It requires just a bit of forethought the night before, then the rest comes together quickly. Just toss whole rolled oats into water to soak over night, then strain any remaining liquid the next morning. When you're up and ready to eat, stir the oats together with grated pear or apple, almond yogurt (I use Silk brand, but use your fav), maple syrup, toasted nuts & seeds and fresh berries. It's a nice change from cooked oatmeal!
I add maple syrup to this recipe to taste. I typically don't add too much as I actually enjoy things when they aren't overly sweet. Just do what makes you happy. Also, feel free to mix up the add ins to your overnight oats. Use grated pear instead of apple, add in your favourite dried fruit and different combinations of nuts and seeds. The possibilities are endless!
This recipe serves 1 hungry person or 2 people who are lighter eaters in the morning. You can easily make a double batch of Bircher Muesli and eat it over a few days!
