What is Vegan Bircher Muesli?

Traditionally it’s a Swiss dish. Think of it like the original overnight oats recipe. You mix the ingredients the night before, place them in the fridge, then in the morning top with some berries and hey presto you have a hearty and nutritious breakfast.

What’s in Vegan Bircher Muesli?

You can really make it your own. There are plenty of options but here’s the foundation;

  • oats- thick rolled oats are best
  • grated apple
  • non diary milk (I used almond)
  • non dairy yogurt (I used unsweetened almond)
  • sultanas or raisins
  • pumpkin seeds
  • maple syrup – just a dash
  • cinnamon
