Overnight Oats (Swiss Bircher Muesli)


My new favorite breakfast! Delicious, Bircher Muesli is a Swiss recipe that precedes overnight oats. It’s basically the same thing, but almost always includes yogurt and grated apples. Traditionally, the oats are soaked overnight in apple juice, but I prefer to soak them in milk, along with all the other ingredients.

Inspired by Pret a Manger

2- 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats (or granola)
  • 1 cup milk (or almond milk)

  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1.5 tablespoons chia seeds

Directions

  1. Mix all the ingredients (except toppings) in a bowl.
  2. Allow to soak overnight or at least 3 hours.
  3. Top with pumpkin seeds, pomegranate seeds, and a drizzle of honey.
