Breakfast/ Overnight Oats

Swiss Bircher Muesli (Overnight Oats)

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
