Blackberry Bircher

A bircher is a great make-ahead breakfast and a handy recipe to have on hand.


  • No blackberries? Try with strawberries or raspberries instead. 
  • Vegan? Use milk and yoghurt vegan alternatives. 
  • No walnuts? Use the nuts/seeds of your choice. 
  • No apple? Try with pear or half banana (mashed) instead. 
  • No maple syrup? Use honey instead. 
  • No flax seeds? Try with chia seeds instead.
