Vegan Breakfast Muesli Recipe

The idea of Muesli was introduced to my world during Vegetarian cuisine in college, while some of my classmates were doing a presentation about fermented foods. Muesli is an uncooked cereal-like grain-based food, typically oats, combined with dry fruits, nuts, nuts, and seeds, and soaked with foods like yogurt, milk, milk alternative, or fruit juice to soften, and in a way, “cook” the grains before consuming them. You can eat Muesli both hot or cold but in this case, we made the recipe cold, and nevertheless, hearty.

Though you can simply mix all the ingredients in one take and begin eating them, the beauty behind this quick dish is the fact that you can make it a fermented food by mixing all the ingredients overnight with an active probiotic food (like coconut yogurt).

By adding a scoop of protein, this delicious breakfast becomes high in protein, active in beautiful gut-friendly bacteria, and balanced breakfast to start your morning. Use your preferred plant-based yogurt and use this recipe as a guideline - you can combine any dry fruits, nuts, and seeds you may prefer. As you can tell, Muesli is incredibly versatile. 


For basics, use a ratio of 4 to 1 to 1 when it comes to making any combination. 4 parts dry grains, 1 part nuts/seeds, and 1 part fruits (I would say do ½ dry and ½ fresh fruits for a beautiful Instagram-able dish). 

To make this dish lower in carbohydrates, skip the granola and swap the soy milk for unsweetened almond or coconut milk.

Another beautiful factor to note is that the protein will provide a very creamy, rich texture to the end product. This mixed with nuts and seeds adds a beautiful crunch factor.

Similarly, be careful on the sweetness - if your protein powder of choice is sweet already, and you are using an already sweet plant-based yogurt, forego or halve the quantity of honey.

This simple yet well-rounded recipe is the perfect recipe for busy people looking for a quick breakfast. Do it the night prior or the same morning in less than 10 minutes and you got yourself an epic meal.


  • ½ cup rolled oats, dry
  • ⅛ cup almonds
  • ⅛ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup mixed berries, fresh
  • ⅓ cup soy milk
  • ½ cup coconut yogurt (we used Laava)
  • 1 scoop plant-based protein powder (We used Absolute Zero Essential)
  • Optional:

  • cacao nibs, coconut flakes


  1. Mix rolled oats, almonds, seeds, dried cranberries in a bowl. Add soy milk, coconut yogurt, and one scoop of protein powder. Mix to incorporate. Top with fresh berries, cacao nibs, and flakes if eating immediately.

  2. If making an overnight oats-style Muesli, combine all ingredients with the exception of fresh fruit and garnishes in a bowl large enough to mix all ingredients evenly. Transfer to a serving bowl or a mason jar. Cover with either lid or plastic wrap and leave overnight in the refrigerator. Feel free to prep garnishes ahead of time so you can simply drop them on top of Muesli in the AM and have a quick to-go breakfast.
