Bircher Muesli with Almond Milk

Bircher Muesli with Almond Milk

Someone on instagram asked me this week for a bircher muesli recipe, I’m not sure why I hadn’t made one before but I’m now obsessed – I had totally forgotten how delicious it is!  Each bite is so awesomely creamy and it’s the easiest breakfast ever. It takes just five minutes to throw together in the evening and then you can just grab it and go in the morning. It’s full of so much goodness too so you’ll feel amazing. Each bowl is made by simply mixing oats with mashed banana and raspberries, lots of almond milk and blueberries, and then an amazing combination of sunflower seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, maple syrup and cacao nibs. I love topping my bowl with more berries, seeds and some raisins in the morning but it’s also amazing with things like granola, coconut yoghurt, mango and dates. The only thing I’d say with this recipe is that you really should try and use homemade almond milk as it’s much creamier than anything you buy in a supermarket which is just a bit too watery for this recipe – almond milk is really the easiest thing to make though, and you can find a recipe here.

The other exciting thing is that I’ve just launched an incredible Easter giveaway competition to celebrate reaching 100,000 followers on instagram, full details for the competition are here – I can’t wait to see all your photos!

Serves 2

– 1 cup of oats (120g)

– 1 over ripe banana

– 1 and a 1/2 cups of homemade almond milk (375ml)

– 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey

– 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

– a handful of sunflower seeds (30g)

– a handful of pumpkin seeds (30g)

– 1/4 of a cup of raspberries (40g)

– 1/4 of a cup of blueberries (40g)

– a handful of cacao nibs (20g)

 Start by slicing up the banana, then place the slices in a mixing bowl with the almond milk and raspberries and mash them all together with a fork. Then add in the oats, seeds, cacao nibs, chia seeds and sweetener and stir together. Place the bowl in the fridge and allow it to thicken overnight.

    I’m allergic to nuts, what can I replace almond milk with?

    Hello, Do I have to use chia seed to make the perfect consistency or is it possible without them? :)

  • ellawoodward

    I really love the chia seeds in it but if you don’t want to use them it shouldn’t make too much difference

    This is definitely one of my favorite recipes! Quick question though: How long, feasibly, do you think this would last in the fridge? The recipe definitely makes more than one serving, but wanted to see how long you think it would last. Thank you for your great blog– I’ve been following you for quite some time and am continuously inspired :)

  • ellawoodward

    Hi Melanie, I would say that this recipe could last up to three days in the fridge. Hope you love it! X

    I’m going to make almond milk for the first time. Can you please tell me how many fluid ounces would be in a cup of water

  • ellawoodward

    Hi, I’m not sure the exact ounce amount as I use ml and cups! Have a lovely day! X

  • JS

    Wow! This was so tasty! I’ve never let muesli sit overnight, but I will from now on. Thanks for another great recipe!

  • Casey Michalak-Frey

    How long does it stay good in the fridge for? like if i made two servings and put them in jars in the fridge how long would the jars last? Thanks! (:

  • ellawoodward

    Hi Casey, I would keep this in the fridge for up to 5 days. Have a lovely day, Ella x

  • ellawoodward

    Hi Jade, I’ve not tried this recipe with frozen berries before, I imagine that they would work well but fresh berries are also delicious! X

  • ellawoodward

    Hi Joanie, it should last well in the fridge for about 3-5 days. Really hope you love it! X

  • Sara Atkin

    Hi Ella
    I’ve just found this recipe which looks lovely BUT can I make it without the banana or substitute it something else?

    • ellawoodward

      You could leave out the banana or try using apple puree instead. Hope you love it! X

      • Sara Atkin

        Thanks Ella. Can’t wait to try it along with your cinnamon pecan granola. Roll on the weekend :)
