Bircher Muesli 

Named after a Swiss physician, Bircher muesli features fresh apple, lemon juice and nuts.  

We added to this refreshing combo by including chia seeds for a boost of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber, and we finish our version with a mix of fresh berries for color and flavor.

– 1 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats (see Tip) – 1 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk – 1 ¼ cups whole-milk plain yogurt – 1 medium Fuji apple, unpeeled, cored and grated (1 cup) – ¼ cup chia seed – 4 dried figs, chopped


– 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice – ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon – 1 ½ cups mixed fresh berries (such as blueberries, blackberries and strawberries) – ¼ cup slivered almond – Honey for serving (optional)


Stir oats, almond milk, yogurt, apple, chia seeds, figs, lemon juice and cinnamon together in a large bowl until well blended. 


Portion 1 cup of the mixture into each of 4 (16-ounce) containers, and cover each with a tight-fitting lid or plastic wrap.  

– Refrigerate until the oats soften, at least 8 hours or up to 5 days.

– To serve, top with berries and almonds. Drizzle with honey, if desired.
