Bircher Muesli & Chia Breakfast Pots

Having just been struck down ill for the past couple weeks, I’m on eating the best of everything right now! One thing that was brought up again for me, were chia seeds and Kaitlin brings us an amazing recipe including these nutritional nuggets! Over to Kaitlin…

These little beauties have been my breaky for the last few weeks. They have replaced the morning green smoothie; maybe it’s the summer coming, but I crave fruit and chia puds now! This is super easy to make and very healthy. The oats keep you full til lunch and the chia pud is high in protein so it’s a great satisfying meal to keep you going.


Bircher muesli

One bag of rolled jumbo oats

Tub of natural yoghurt

1 apple, grated

2tsp cinnamon

2tbsp honey/maple syrup/agave syrup

Handful of almonds

Water/nut milk

Chia pudding

Two cups of nut milk
6 tbsp chia seeds
1tsp vanilla powder
1tbsp honey/maple syrup/agave syrup

Extra yoghurt to layer
Fruit to layer on top
Mint leaves


For the Bircher muesli, mix all ingredients together and add a little water or nut milk to attain the consistency you like, it shouldn’t be too dry; better to have a little more liquid as the oats will absorb it. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.

The chia pudding should also be made the night before, mix all ingredients together in a bowl, stir every 5-10 mins for half hour or so, cover, then leave in fridge.

In the morning layer the muesli, chia pud, yoghurt, mint and fruit (I like berries and rhubarb) into little jars to make breakfast pots! Super cute and ideal to grab when in a hurry! You can also make these on the weekend for your week ahead!
