Homemade muesli is a healthy and delicious make ahead breakfast - and bircher muesli is the best muesli there is! Try this muesli with apple and hazelnuts. Find more on Kidspot New Zealand.



  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 cup natural (Greek) yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup craisins, sultanas or chopped dried apricots
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, grated (skin on)
  • 1 cup toasted hazlenuts, roughly chopped


Combine the rolled oats, juice, yoghurt, dried fruit, and cinnamon in a bowl and stir to combine.

Add the grated apple and spoon into glass jars or small (1 or 1/2 cup capacity) plastic containers. Chill overnight.

Serve sprinkled with the toasted hazlenuts or other seasonal fruit and nuts (see suggestions below).


  • Top your muesli with any seasonal fruit and nut combination you fancy. My favourite is apple and toasted hazlenut, followed closely by the below:
  • Raspberries and toasted crushed walnuts
  • Poached pears and flaked almonds
  • LSA mixture and fresh blueberries
  • Granny Smith apples are the best for this recipe.
