What a great concept, the healthy way to have bircher muesli! Overnight oats are healthy more accessible way to have Bircher Muesli and is a healthier alternative.

Ingredients

  • • ¼ cup = one serve/or larger size = ½ cup
  • • 1/2 cup of water = one serve or 1 cup = 2 serves
  • • ½ banana, mashed
  • • 1/4 cup berries, fresh or frozen
  • • 1 tablespoon tahini or nut butter of choice
  • • a handful of chopped walnuts, toasted almonds or pumpkin seeds

Make it like so....

  • 1. The night before, place oats in a jar or bowl and cover with water. Store in your fridge overnight.
  • 2. In the morning, add all other ingredients.
  • 3. Option to heat the oats if you want. You can put the jar in a pot of cold water and heat them together or in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • 4. Stir to mix well, find a nice place to sit and enjoy!

Notes

1. You don't need to use oats, I found quinoa and rice flakes work very well too.

2. You don't need to do this in a jar. Feel free to create in a bowl or other container of your choice.

3. If you don't like cold oats, you can heat them.

4. If you want to add more fat, you could soak the oats in a milk of your choice OR top the oats at service with milk of your choice.

muesli!  Overnight oats really are healthy more accessible way to have Bircher Muesli –  and because you are not using fruit juice and dairy – is a healthier alternative.  Bonus, you are not restricted to using oats, I have created these wonder jars with quinoa flakes as well as rice flakes.

Building Breakfast from the bottom of the Jar up!

The basics are so simple – you need 1/4 cup (per serve) of raw/organic long cooking  rolled oats, water, mason jar with lid.  REALLY that’s all your need.  Adding your touches is what makes this a killer breakfast.  I like to add mashed banana, raspberries (fresh or frozen) Tahini, maple syrup and toasted nuts or seeds. 

Last night I didn’t have all my go to ingredients,  I used what was on hand.  Here is what I created – 1/4 cup oats, 1 medjool date (diced and mashed), 1/4 cup frozen raspberries, 1 spoon almond butter, 1 tsp  raw cacao, and to serve, toasted almonds and pumpkin seeds.  I also heated my oats before eating – I filled a pot with water and put the jar in and heated both together (TIP:  bring the cold water and cold jar up to temp together prevents glass from shattering).   If you are short on time, you can always microwave the jar for about 1-2 minutes for the same result.

See the following recipe for your next FUN breakfast creation!  If you want to create a larger batch easy also.  What you can do, is use 1/4 measure per portion  – for example you want to create 8 portions you would measure 2 full cups.  I would then put this is a large bowl that will fit in your fridge and add the water, about 4 cups.
