Pick ‘n’ Mix Bircher Muesli

  • Servings : 2 cups
  • Prep Time : 1:30 h
  • Cook Time : 5m
  • Ready In : 5m

Muesli has always been my favourite for breakfast.  Except when I was pregnant with George when nothing beat sourdough toast with vegemite!  Soaking the muesli overnight is a nice variation and gives it a yummy creaminess and softness that the little ones might enjoy.  Instead of the muesli soaked in juice, traditional bircher style, we’ve soaked it in milk for extra calcium, protein and vitamin B2.

This muesli is perfect for pick ‘n’ mix options – whatever is in your pantry will be perfect.

    My 18 month old son and I both love this recipe – we use sultanas, finely chopped walnuts, blueberries and grated apple. Generally my son eats his serve and half of mine too!

    I’ve made it twice now for my twins & it serves as afternoon ‘tea’ for both for 3 days 🙂 And I’m happy to eat any leftovers 😉
    Thank you!

    This has become a wonderful weekly for a few months now for my 17 month old. I generally use finely shredded coconut, sultanas and chia seeds but I love that I can change it up with whatever is in the cupboard. I always feel good giving it to my little lady because it is such a nutritious and complete breakfast.
