Birchermuesli (aka Swiss-style overnight oats)

Last night I whipped up an old favourite:

1 apple, grated, skin and all

1/4 cup jumbo oats

1/2 cup oat milk

1/2 cup frozen raspberries

Then cover the bowl and leave it in the fridge overnight.

Next morning, I stirred in some of my raspberry oat milk yogurt and half a big banana.

This was soo good! Even though the oat milk and yogurt are fairly light, the whole combo tasted really creamy and the apple and raspberry gives it plenty of sweetness.

I got myself properly hungry for my breakfast this morning; I took a leaf out of Farty Girl's book and got up before sunrise for a nice run. I felt so energised the rest of the day!
Eats for the rest of the day were banana, kiwi and carrot sticks with homemade hummus. I have to confess to a small coffee after lunch...whoops! But nothing kills hummusy garlic breath like a cup of the bean..aaah. Now I'm hungry again! I walked to and from work and went for a little coffee walk in the middle of the day too. Time to whip up a green veggie concoction!


  1. I can't thank you enough for this recipe! I eat this A LOT! It's so awesome to be able to eat a raw breakfast without having to take all the prep time in the morning. Although, since I'm fruit phobic, I make it with applesauce, almond slivers, and sometimes dates or coconut.

    Glad to hear the running in the AM did you good! <3

    HMMMM.... OATLY!!!!

  2. Oatly really is great. I buy it four boxes at a time- it's my hands down favourite non-dairy milk, I think it has the most neutral taste so goes best in cooking, in tea and on muesli.
    Birchermuesli is a nice brekkie for spring time, satisfying but not as heavy as cooked oatmeal. I can't believe I hadn't made it for so long!
