Though there are a few muesli recipes on this site, this one is unique in its inclusion of wheat germ. This recipe mixes up a big batch that can be stored in an airtight container for a month or so. Though the original recipe comes from, this one has been adapted a bit to suit my tastes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients together and store in an air tight container.
  2. For breakfast combine 1/4 cup of the muesli mix with 1/4 cup of water and let soak for 30 minutes. Serve with 1 cup of yogurt and chopped fruit. Diced apples strawberries, bananas and blueberries all work well.
  3. 9/14 update: After reading the reviewer comments, I'm changing the directions to a 1:1 ratio of muesli and water. While the 2:1 worked well for me, my oatmeal is an organic super grainy type that may not represent the typical grain. Thank you Paula and Amis for the helpful feedback.

I'm not up and around after surgery so my neighbour came over and made this for us. It's great. My oatmeal is organic so we went between the 1 to 1 and 2.1 ratio. We topped it with blackberries I have growing outside.

I've never had bircher muesli before, I don't know why, this was really good & surprisingly filling for such a small amount. I added some chopped dates as well as toasted coconut to mine, served with vanilla yoghurt & chopped strawberries it was a nice change for breakfast, best part is I have still have plenty of the mixture left for future brekkies. Made for ZWT III.

Very good way to have a healthy breakfast always on hand. I added some pecans to up the protein a bit and heated mine up. We liked it better warm. Made for ZWT3. Thanks for sharing!
