What is the difference between bircher muesli and regular muesli?

Regular muesli is typically dry, made of oats and some nuts and seeds. On the other side, bircher muesli is similar to Overnight Steel Cut Oats, and is soaked overnight to form a porridge.

Traditionally, bircher muesli is made with a creamy element, like yogurt, some lemon juice, and often some sort of fruit like apple or orange.

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Use a firm crisp apple, like granny smith or honey crisp which will hold up better in the overnight oats.
  • Don’t skip out on the lemon juice. The juice not only adds some nice tang to the recipe but will help prevent the apple from turning brown.
  • Use rolled oats for a chewy texture. (delicious!) Or, if you prefer a more porridge-like texture, you can use quick oats for this recipe instead
  • Double the recipe and use small individual sized mason jars to have your breakfast ready and portioned out for 3-4 days.
