Bircher (sp?) muesli recipes - the ones I've tried are rubbish!

I bought a little pot of Bircher muesli from M&S and it was bloody great. Every recipe I've tried just tastes crap though! Thin and chewy.....with basically raw porridge.

Any decent recipes/tips on how to get a thick and creamy version please?

For two people I do a grated Apple to about 100ish grams of oats, add enough milk to barely cover then a good dollop of Greek yog. And I chuck in whatever appropriate fruit I have lying about - sometimes just raisins. Then leave it in the fridge overnight.

I don't think it's very authentic but we like it. It should be Apple juice I think, but as I make it for my toddler of rarher she had the dairy/protein than juice. And it's deliciously creamy, especially as we use full fat.

My iPhone has capitalised Apple, not me!

Dorset Cereals do one. It has dried apple in it. Soak the muesli in apple juice overnight and add which ever yogurt you like…very nice.

Tried to mix my own a few times but not nearly as good as the shop bought.. sad

By grate, I mean finely so you've got Apple mush. Look forward to hearing!

So.....I forgot to make it last night and thought throwing it together this morning and only letting it sit for half an hour would be an unfair trial....

Will come back tomorrow!!

I finally made it! Got up with ds at 1am this morning and though since I was up anyway I'd throw it together. I used apple juice rather than milk though and was too tired to look for the grater so put the apple in this morning instead but it was lovely! Not as sweet as the m&s version, they probably add sugar though.... The Greek yoghurt made it super creamy - loved it!
