Bircher Muesli Recipe

This is The Original Apple Bircher Muesli recipe, as can be found in the book 'Health-Giving dishes' by Dr Bircher-Benner, first published in 1934 ! Swiss Bircher-Benner advocated eating MUESLI (Dietetic Fruit Dishes) as an integral part of the daily diet (to be eaten for breakfast and supper). The original recipe calls for condensed milk, but you can use yoghurt instead. I like to use coconut milk or oat cream for a vegan muesli.

  • Rinse the apple / apples or clean them by rubbing them with a clean dry cloth. Do not remove the pip, core or pips.
  • Mix the soaked oats with the yoghurt and lemon juice. Quickly grate the apples (with peel, core and pips) into this mixture and in order to prevent the apples from browning through contact with the air, stir in immediately. If not eating immediately, prepare the oats yoghurt lemon juice mixture, and keep the apple whole, only grating it right before eating.
  • Serve the nuts separately and sprinkle over the dish at the last moment.
