Bircher Muesli

Make your own delicious muesli.


  • 1 tblsp rolled oats (heaped)
  • 1 tblsp sultanas
  • 3-4 dried apricots, chopped (optional)
  • 4 tblsp spring water
  • 1 tblsp wheatgerm
  • 1 apple
  • 1 tblsp almonds or hazelnuts
  • ground cloves or cinnamon to flavour
  • juice of ½ lemon or orange
  • 1 dessertspoon honey
  • 1 dessertspoon yoghurt


  1. This may be started the night before.
  2. Put oats and dried fruit into a bowl.
  3. Cover with 4 tablespoons water and soak overnight.
  4. In the morning, sprinkle in the wheatgerm.
  5. Chop the apple, including skin, core and pips, with the nuts in a food processor (alternatively grate apple and roughly chop nuts by hand ).
  6. Tip them into the bowl of oats, sprinkle with spice, pour on the lemon or orange juice and top with honey and yoghurt.
  7. Stir until all the ingredients are well mixed together and it is ready to serve.
  8. You might find that this rather an off-putting looking mess, but it is delicious all the same!
