Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons rolled oats (certified GF if necessary)
  • 1 tablespoon raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 teaspoon flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • tiny pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons plain or vanilla vegan yogurt
  • ¼ cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • maple syrup or other sweetener, to taste
  • fresh berries, more shredded coconut etc, for topping.

Instructions

  • In a sealable jar or bowl, combine the oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut, flax seeds, chia seeds, and salt. Stir them together to combine. Then, add the yogurt, blueberries, and non-dairy milk. Stir the bircher muesli thoroughly to combine.
  • Top the bircher muesli with a lid and leave it in the refrigerator to thicken overnight.
  • In the morning, give the blueberry coconut bircher muesli a stir. Add a splash of non-dairy milk if it’s thickened up too much. Stir in a splash of maple syrup if you like a touch of sweetness. Serve the blueberry coconut bircher muesli with fresh berries and more shredded coconut if you like.

Notes

  • I actually prefer frozen blueberries here (always in season) because they seep out their pretty blue juices overnight to colour the muesli.
  • I’ve made this with all seeds/coconut and zero oats, and it’s just as good. Just make sure that you bump up your chia seed amount to 1 full tablespoon.
  • My favourite vegan yogurts: Anita’s, Coyo, and Lavva
  • Bircher muesli/overnight oat mixtures do better when they’re sweetened right before serving. I find the sweetness dissipates after the overnight thickening period, so just add in the morning.
