Birchermüesli from Savor

I saw Savor on display as I was checking out books at the library. A big, beautiful book, with an entire life inside it. So far I’ve made the homemade yogurt, cornbread, and this birchermüesli. If you are craving the mountain life, this book is for you.

Hot oatmeal season is coming, I know, but, in the spirit of complete denial, I’m wearing flip flops until the first snow, eating ice cream, and making another batch of birchermüesli.



Prep Time: 15 minutes


1 and 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup raisins
3 tablespoons dried blackcurrants
3 tablespoons dried dates, cut into pieces
1/4 cup almonds, chopped
2 tablespoons raw, unsalted sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
1 cup orange juice
1 cup plain yogurt
Fresh fruit and extra yogurt for serving


  1. Put all the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and stir well. Refrigerate overnight in tupperware. Stir again in the morning before serving.


The blackcurrants are my own addition. The original recipe calls for unsweetened dried blueberries, 1/4 cup rye flakes (which I replaced with rolled oats), and freshly squeezed orange juice (I used store bought OJ with lots of pulp).

I often double the recipe so it lasts me 5 days.

    I could eat bircher muesli all year too. It’s always such a calming way to begin the day, knowing that a nourishing breakfast is already waiting in the fridge. Hope you are well, Lu!
