Bircher Muesli

Super healthy and super filling breakfast, full of goodness. A real quick and easy breakfast option. This is my basic recipe but you can chop and change how ever you feel is right – Maybe try it with some fresh fruit and berried in it too!

Makes 1 Bowl / 1 Portion
Total Time: 25min not including soaking time
Plant based Cooking Course Jay Halford
Prep: 10min
Serving: 15min



  • Soak the muesli and the chia seeds in all of the home made almond milk (check out my home made almond milk recipe if you don’t already make it). Or use KOKO coconut milk if you are short on time
  • Add in the ground cinnamon, chopped almonds, vanilla and coconut nectar or sweetener of choice
  • Leave this to soak for at least 10 minutes, longer if you can to make sure the chia seeds have time to absorb all of the liquid.
  • Fine chop the apple and banana then add it into the mixing bowl with the rest of the muesli mix.
  • Finish it off with a little pinch of salt, tasting as you go to get it just how you like. I like mine with loads of cinnamon!!

Equipment needed:


If you want your bircher muesli a little more creamy then you could add a tablespoon of either natural or coconut yogurt. This will add a great texture and flavour to the muesli.

My Top Tips:

For better presentation on this dish go for height. Especially with the apple batons you can get great height with them and make this dish look great.
This is a really good base recipe – try and have a play around with this your self and invent your own flavour combos. Swap out the dried fruits maybe and add different ones, Try adding some fresh berries. Its great how it is but I want to encourage people to get creative and play around with this. Make sure you send me your new combos and creations I would love to see them.
Always having a pot of mixed seeds to hand in your kitchen can be a great garnish for many things. I make up a little mix using: black sesame, sunflower, flaxseed, hemp seeds and chia seeds. Even add them into things for extra nutrients as I did in this video.
If you are using just normal rolled oats for this recipe instead of the primrose kitchen muesli then just toast the lightly in the oven for for 5 minutes on 180oc this will give the muesli that extra bit of awesome nutty flavour.
