About the Recipe

I fell in love with Bircher muesli while working in a little cafe in Perth, WA. The creamy texture with the fresh fruity flavours plus the toppings made for a great little breakfast. You can make a big batch of this in advance so you can have a super tasty and quick breakfast throughout the week, it'll keep for about 5 days in the fridge.


Soaked oats

  • 250g Rolled oats

  • 250ml Milk of your choice

  • 125ml orange juice or juice of 1 orange

  1. Place oats, sultanas and chia seeds into a large bowl.
