Bircher muesli is a staple breakfast in our household every morning. Maybe you're wondering how I fit in a bircher muesli every day when there are so many different breakfast recipes on The Worktop? Well, I'm pregnant so eating for one-and-a-half means eating two breakfasts ;D
Here's my secret - I usually eat a quick bowl of bircher muesli before I get started on making the main deal for breakfast. I need to keep myself from snacking on the breakfasts before I photograph them, and the bircher muesli keeps my tummy satisfied in the meantime.
Lately, I've been enjoying the new Dorset Cereals bircher muesli mixes in both varieties (1) Almonds & Honey and (2) Raspberry and Blackcurrant. The way I like to make the Dorset Cereals bircher muesli mix is to soak the bircher muesli in half apple juice and half almond milk, then mix in a plain greek yogurt. I found that soaking the Dorset Cereals bircher mix in 100% apple juice made it too sweet. The dried fruit in the bircher mix adds enough sweetness for me. Plus, by replacing some of the juice with almond milk makes the bircher muesli a bit creamier.
Dorset Cereals also recommends letting the bircher muesli soak for at least 30 minutes to overnight. It's a really flexible bircher mix. The shortest time I've let it soak is 5 minutes and it still is tasty. I've also made a huge tub of it and kept it in the fridge for two days worth of bircher muesli.
If you're looking for some other bircher muesli flavor combinations, here are a few ideas:
- Coconut & Apricot: soak bircher muesli in coconut water and mix in apricot yogurt
- Pineapple & Coconut: soak bircher muesli in pineapple juice and mix in coconut yogurt
- Pure Blueberry: soak bircher muesli in blueberry juice and mix in blueberry yogurt
- Chocolate & Coconut: soak bircher muesli in chocolate milk and mix in coconut yogurt
You can also get more creative and add in additional toppings such as maple syrup, ground cinnamon, chopped nuts, or even some cordial. Bircher muesli is fun to make and eat because there are a million ways you can personalize your own bircher muesli breakfast.
Lastly, if you don't have a packaged bircher muesli mix, you can make it from scratch entirely with just oats - here's my quick recipe for bircher muesli.
