This vegan bircher muesli is a delicious, healthy, quick and easy breakfast recipe, but you can also have it as a snack or dessert.
It's really easy to make a delicious, healthy and quick breakfast recipe! I'm not a morning person, so I'm totally into this kind of recipes. Smoothies and oatmeal are my favorite ones, but I'm totally obsessed with bircher muesli now.
I didn't know it until I saw a picture on Pinterest and I'm so happy because this recipe is life-changing, seriously! Just in case you don't know what bircher muesli is, I have to say it's pretty similar to overnight oats (but it has a fancier name).
You just need to put your favorite ingredients in a mason jar or sealed container, keep it in the fridge overnight and you have an amazing, super healthy breakfast recipe, which is ready in less than 5 minutes. It's also a great snack or dessert, although I prefer to have my bircher muesli for breakfast because it's so satisfying.
You can see the bircher muesli after keeping it in the fridge overnight in the picture below and the muesli the next day in the rest of the pictures.
Feel free to add more or less milk, depending on how thick you like your muesli. Add more milk just before serving if it's too dense for you.

Hi do I need to soak the oats first? I’ve just made your oat milk recipe (delicious!) which says this is an important stage as it rinses out the phytic acid. What is the difference here? Thanks, F
Hi Fiona! It's better to soak the oats first, but on a daily basis is not always possible and I think it's not a big deal. Have a nice day!

Grating in one green apple in the morning is also wonderful 😀😀
Hi Ann-Marie! Sounds amazing, I love green apples 😉
The vegan Bircher is fabulous.
Hi Peter! So glad you liked it 🙂
Thank you for this recipe. When we traveled to China in May 2016, the hotels had wonderful breakfast buffets with a mixture of Chinese and American/European items to choose from. At one hotel, they offered Bircher muesli, which I had never heard of and decided to try. It was very good. This posting brought back that memory. I made it up last night and had it for breakfast this morning. Very nice and worthy of repeat! Joyce from Syracuse, NY
Hi Joyce! You're so welcome 🙂 I'm so glad you liked it!
