Bircher Muesli (vegan and sugarfree)

Time for a new recipe – usually my family eats oatmeal for breakfast every single morning. However, now that it is getting warmer, we sometimes crave something cold in the morning. I love a simple breakfast of fruit or a smoothie but my husband needs something more solid. This is why I like to make bircher muesli in Summer; it is cold, somehow refreshing, yet filling and totally satisfying. Have you ever tried it? If not, you definetly should 🙂

There are a million recipes for bircher muesli out there and this recipe here can be adapted to your preferences and taste. The important thing is just that you let your muesli soak over night (or at least for an hour) instead of eating it right away (or cooking it). My husband and I, we used to eat muesli the way most Germans are eating it – fresh. We blended up muesli and (plant) milk together and ate it. Easy peasy. However, we realized that this caused us quite some digestion issues. So about a year ago we began eating oatmeal instead (hence, cooked the oats) and the digestion problems dissappeared. Bircher muesli is raw and yet, since the oats are soaked, it is very easy to digest.To make it even easier to digest you can also use germinated oats. Through the germination process the amount of minerals such a iron and calcium and vitamins such as vitamin c and e increase; plus the grain is easier digested because the protein is broken up into amino acids during germination.

For us bircher muesli is like the perfect inbetween of oatmeal and raw muesli 🙂

For our bircher muesli we like to use:

Around 8 TbS Oats
1 TbS ground flaxseeds
1 TbS Raisins
1 TbS Walnuts
1/2 Apple
1 TbS Berries (fresh or frozen)

1 cup homemade almond milk:

1 TbS almonds
4 dates
1 cup ofwater
Just blend everything together in a highspeed blender

Depending on your taste you can always add the following to the muesli

Sugarfree vegan yogurt
1/2 Banana
1/2 TS Cocoa- nibs
1/2 TS Cinnamon
Some Vanilla

Cut the apple into small pieces, break the walnuts into small pieces. Make the almond milk. Blend the oats, the other ingredients, and the almond milk and let the bircher muesli sit over night in the fridge. The next morning you can add some berries or other toppings to your taste and enjoy.

In case you do not have time to let the muesli soak over night, make sure to let it sit for at least one hour. You can always change the raisins to goji berries or add sunflower seeds or other seeds to the muesli. Be creative and make your personal perfect bircher muesli 😉

What do you like to eat for breakfast in Summer? Or do you eat breakfast at all :)? I would love to know!

Have a great start into the new week everyone!

    I always eat this overnight oats for breakfast! Like every single morning, we love it with my husband:) We always make sure to choose the best oats, I add a regular milk to it or a coconut milk which I make myself, and I put a lot of fruits in it. Now we love it with strawberries and peaches:) I also add some raw cocoa to my oats and I sprinkle it with a spoon of bran. We dont eat a huge portion of it, so we eat a sandwich as well – I guess we need something even more solid than oats and fruits:P I’ve also noticed that oats helped me with some digestive problems and I love them for that! Wow, six kinds of melons seems yummy – yesterday I bought a huge watermelon, cos I loooove it, but now I’m eating some sweet cherries, they are also in season and so yummy:) Have a lovely week, hugs:)))

    Ich gestehe, liebe Larissa, ich esse unabhängig von der Saison praktisch immer das Gleiche zum Frühstück: entweder Müsli (gut im Sommer mit frischen Früchten 🙂 ) oder Brot mit Butter und Honig und dazu immer Kaffee mit Milch und ganz viel Früchtetee. Bircher-Müsli mag ich auch sehr, mache es aber nur selten selber. Wobei mich Deine vegane Variante jetzt schon sehr lockt, mich an die Arbeit zu machen … danke für das Rezept!

    Alles lecker, außer die Rosinen im Müsli – damit kann man mich ja jagen. 🙂

    This looks so yummy! I’m all about breakfast in the morning. Lately I’ve been loving eggs + toast or oatmeal with fruit.

    I love muesli but have never made it myself before. I would love to try! Lately for breakfast I have been eating fruit. Bananas or nectarines are my favorites right now.
