Easiest Vegan Breakfast Recipe – Bircher Muesli

Bircher Muesli was a long-time breakfast treat, discovered in hotel breakfast buffets around Asia. While typically made with dairy products, such as milk, cream or yogurt, this vegan version uses soy milk and lemon juice. I can think of few breakfasts that are as easy, healthy or delicious!

Ingredients: (2 servings)

1/2 cup rolled oats or other whole-grain cereal

cup soy milk (or other non-dairy milk)

1 tablespoon shredded coconut (or other dried fruit)

1 tablespoon raw sunflower seeds (or other nuts/seeds)

1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

1 medium apple, unpeeled

1 tablespoon lemon juice


Combine oats with soymilk in the evening (or several hours before you plan to eat) and place in refrigerator.

Prior to eating, add lemon juice and mix well (soymilk will thicken).

Cut apple into quarters, remove core, and grate with cheese grater.

Stir grated apple, fruits, nuts and seeds into oats.

Chew well to enjoy nutrition far exceeding processed breakfast cereals. Just try it, and see how good you feel!

As a bonus for reading this far, here’s a video version of non-dairy Bircher muesli I prepared for a healthy cooking instructor program.

    On the topic of breakfast cereals…. When I was visiting Canada, I came across something called: “Holy Crap” cereal… Just thought I’d share it with you. I just had to have it when I saw the name and started laughing in the grocery store.

    It’s ummm…. interesting. Contains some little, seeds or pellets that get really slimy when exposed to moisture… But other than that, it’s really unusual. Maybe you aught to try some!

    I checked their FAQ and confirmed it contains chia seeds, formerly used in chia pets, and one of the “superfoods”. Chia sees are extremely nutritious and versatile in cooking for breakfast, beverages (now being sold bottled in the U.S.), and desserts. http://www.mammachia.com/
    One of my favorite recipes is repair and recover pudding to be used post-exercise.
