Vegan Bircher Muesli Recipe

Bircher Muesli is always in demand when I crave a simple, healthy breakfast. Especially in the pre-Christmas season, healthy food often gets a little short shrift. Not that I don’t eat healthy in general, however, I do quite enjoy snacking on my own creations. I love to cook healthy, but Christmas treats use a higher than average amount of sugar and fat. To balance things out, I like something healthy and clean in between meals, like this delicious Bircher Muesli that’s ready in a snap. In the screw jar also ideal TO GO.

This delicious and quick breakfast is perfect to prepare and easy to take with you the next morning. I usually use a canning jar with a screw lid for this, or a special breakfast box. The night before, it takes just 5 minutes to stir everything together and then it’s off to the fridge. Sleep once and everything is perfect. Now you just get to think about whether you want an extra topping on your healthy breakfast.

As usual, the ingredient list is short and crisp. Oatmeal, carrot, apple, ginger, oatmeal, vegetable milk, creamy yogurt or cottage cheese, sunflower seeds and maple syrup. That was it!

Who invented it? Interestingly, a Swiss named Maximilian Oskar Bircher Benner. The doctor laid the foundation for the popular breakfast 150 years ago. At that time he served muesli to his patients as a dietary food and nowadays we still love it because of its healthy properties.

Oatmeal is one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods. They contain important vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and vegetable protein. At the same time, they have little fat and provide the highest content of vitamin B1 and B6 of all cereals.

NOTE: Depending on how you like your granola, you can use small leaf or large leaf rolled oats. Small leaf oatmeal is a little softer and doesn’t have as much bite as the large leaf variety. Of course, you can use other cereals depending on what you have at home. A delicious gluten-free option would be buckwheat flakes, for example.

If you’re looking for a different breakfast idea today, I have the following suggestions for you:
