Family bircher breakfast

bircher timings

Our family can’t get enough of this easy to make Bircher recipe! It’s a delicious soaked fruit muesli, so a great way for babies to get more raw fruit in their diet as it softens up beautifully.

The 6 ingredients don’t need any cooking, just 15 minutes soaking time (or overnight for extra creaminess). The Bircher mix is eaten cold; a fantastic family breakfast in the summer when you fancy a hearty filling meal without having to sweat over hot porridge!




200g of traditional porridge oats
600 mls unsweetened almond milk
3 tbsp natural yogurt (we like coconut yogurt)
2 tbsp desiccated coconut
3 apples (1 or 2 will work but 3 gives a lovely appley flavour, we love Granny Smiths but any sweet apples will do!)
1 lime

Optional toppings
Baby friendly: cinnamon, mashed fruit.
For grown ups: Seeds like Sunflowers/Pumpkin/Flax or Chia, Dried fruit (cranberries and chopped apricots are lovely).



  1. Pour the porridge oats into a large container or jug that will fit in the fridge.
  2. Add the milk and yogurt to the oats (if you are not soaking your oats over night this is when the soaking time starts – 15 minutes until breakfast!)
  3. Stir in the desiccated coconut.
  4. Grate the apples straight into the oaty mix
  5. Squeeze in the juice of 1 lime to give a lovely fresh flavour
  6. Stir the mix (if you are preparing for the next day place in the fridge overnight).
  7. When your oats are soaked, pour your Bircher into your breakfast bowls, add any additional toppings you fancy and eat straight away.


Easy Vegan Bircher recipe for the family. It's baby weaning safe with only 6 ingredients that soak in 15 minutes
