Today, we're putting a spotlight on the iconic Bircher Muesli, a creation that dates back to the early 1900s by the visionary Swiss physician, Maximilian Bircher-Brenner. As a pioneer of the raw food concept, he advocated for whole-food nutrition with a high proportion of raw ingredients in treating his patients. It was within this context that Bircher Muesli was created.

Designed with health and simplicity in mind, Bircher Muesli was a revolutionary concept that transformed the breakfast scene in Switzerland and Germany, and eventually, the world. Its core philosophy aligns perfectly with our mission: to offer meals that are not only good for the body but also delightful for the palate.

  • 150g of your favorite The Brot Box Muesli (preferably Organic Nuts & Raisins Muesli)
  • 300 ml milk (dairy or any plant-based alternative like almond, soy, or coconut milk)
  • 2 small apples (for a touch of sweetness and tartness)
  • 200g Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice (to preserve the freshness of the fruit)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Cinnamon.


  1. First, mix The Brot Box Muesli with your favorite milk. Allow the mixture to sit for an hour or, even better, overnight. This will give the oats a creamy consistency.
  2. Just before serving, grate the apples and mix with lemon juice. Then fold in the apples, yogurt, and honey.
  3. Season the finished muesli with cinnamon and, if you like, serve with your favorite fruits.

Customization Tips:

  • Vegan Option: Use plant-based milk and yogurt alternatives to make your Bircher Muesli vegan-friendly.
  • Seasonal Fruits: Adapt the recipe to the seasons by incorporating fresh, local fruits available to you.
  • Nut-Free Version: For a nut-free variant, simply use our Organic Basic Muesli or Organic Fruits Muesli.
