I haven't had Bircher Muesli since I was a kid. It was invented by a Swiss health expert in the early 1900s. The kind I remember came in a box like regular cereal, but with dried apple, not fresh. I loved the boxed kind, freshly made is even better! (Overnight soaking time is not included in the prep.)

How to Make Bircher Muesli


  1. Soak the oats and dried fruit in the apple juice overnight.
  2. Core and roughly grate the apple. Or chop it very finely. Divide soaked oats into two bowls.
  3. Add apple to soaked oats. Add enough milk to make a loose "porridgey" consistency. Sprinkle with the nuts and add a dollop of yogurt, plus a drizzle of honey. Serve immediately.
