One Pot Bircher Muesli – Gluten Free, Dairy Free

This is a gluten free and dairy free, one pot wholesome breakfast in a jar that takes me straight back to previous visits to Germany. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of eating Bircher muesli, you will appreciate the smooth, creamy richness that signifies this decadent breakfast. Not for the faint hearted, calorie wise, Bircher is often made with cream. This version, however, is much lighter and healthier, whilst retaining that same satisfaction.

I credit this recipe to Jenny at Let’s Talk Mommy, whose gorgeous looking recipe for overnight oats inspired me to make my own.

Like Jenny says, the possibilities for this dish are limited only to your tastes and preferences. Vary the fruit, swap the fresh fruit for dried (dates, apricots, cranberries or raisins) and make it nut free by swapping the almond milk for apple juice and the nuts for toasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

It really is that versatile and I promise you, it is just as yummy as it looks.

Recipe Notes

The best bit about this recipe is stirring it all up the next day to make a lovely Bircher mix. What you get is a zingy fresh and fruity hit, along with a touch of crunch to complement the creamy oats. The hint of coconut coming through gives a burst of sweetness.

      That would be nice. I had chopped peach in mine this morning, as I ran out of strawberries and raspberries

    This looks so nice. I’m definitely going to give it a go, it would be very handy to make for days when I’m working. I know two little dairy free boys who would definitely want some too. 😀 Thanks for joining #freefromfridays

      I’m sure they would have fun mixing it all up in the morning too!

    I love soaked oats. There are so many combinations and by soaking the oats you are making them more nutritious and easier to digest. I love yours in little jars…they look very classy!

    I love this! You can just put in whatever you want… I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Bircher museli, but it looks so delicious. Those jars are really cute!

      I love summer fruits in combination, but it would work with anything.

    Anyone has an idea what the jar size is for one portion? 250 ml? rather 300 ml?

      I use the Kilner terrine jars, which I believe are 350ml. Hope that helps.
