Breakfast Bircher

If you find it hard to think about breakfast or lack the time to make it, a batch of bircher in the fridge could be the solution!

Bircher was originally developed by a doctor named Maximillian Bircher Brenner, however, shop bought bircher and mueslis are often crammed with sugars. Here, we’ve concocted a simple and delicious recipe just for you – no added sugar required.

When deciding on fruit to serve, think seasonal! Here are some suggestions:

  • Summer: fresh berries and/or stone fruit, chopped
  • Autumn: pears, cored and diced
  • Winter: apple and rhubarb, chopped and poached
  • Spring: banana, finely sliced, mango, diced

Tip: If you eat dairy products and don’t typically have coconut yoghurt in the fridge, you can sub out the coconut yoghurt used for the topping with plain dairy yoghurt.


  • 1cup - quinoa flakes (or rolled oats)
  • 1/4cup - chia seeds
  • 1cup - coconut, shredded or fresh
  • zest of a lemon
  • 1 - apple, grated
  • 2 1/2cup - coconut water (or substitute with plain water)
  • 1/4cup - toasted nuts of your choice (walnuts/pistachio or pecans)
  • To serve options:
  • coconut or any other plain unsweetened yoghurt
  • nuts and seeds
  • berries or additional fresh fruit


  1. Simply combine flakes (or oats), chia seeds, coconut, lemon zest, apple, coconut water and nuts into a large bowl or jar and stir to thoroughly combine.
  2. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight ready for the morning.
  3. When ready to eat, spoon out a portion in a bowl, and top with yogurt, fruits and seeds to serve.
