Plan ahead the night before breakfast and make bircher muesli with yogurt, oats, shredded apples, dried cranberries, nuts and cinnamon. Chill it in the fridge.
Mornings are hectic with trying to squeeze in a trip to the gym, adequate time to get dressed and a few moments to eat a healthy breakfast.
Cereal with a glass of juice is my go-to, but lately I have been thinking that I need to incorporate more than processed carbs into my a.m. routine.
While I am not chowing down on sugar-laced cereal with a prize buried in the bottom of the box, I know I could do better by including fruit and nuts into the mix.
But the challenge is that it must come together in the same amount of time it takes to pour Cheerios and milk.
The key was making something the night before that could be simply transferred from a container in the fridge to a breakfast dish.
I am a big fan of yogurt, but I wanted something a bit heartier. That’s when Bircher Muesli, also known as Swiss Oatmeal, came to mind.
A combination of oats, shredded apple, dried cranberries, chopped almonds and honey sat in yogurt overnight.
The ingredients melded together creating yogurt with a satisfying bite.
I topped the bowl with roasted figs and chopped pistachios, and breakfast was done in no time.SaveSaveSaveSave

I make this too! I like pears in it as well – and a bit of nut butter on top. great photos!
You made our national dish absolutely authentic 🙂 It looks fantastic! We eat it all the time, for a quick lunch or as a pre/post workout snack! So glad you like it!!
This looks so good, I’m always looking for a new way to spice up my morning oatmeal! I can’t wait to try this tomorrow.
Paige – this looks interesting. I have been enjoying yogurt with walnuts and either strawberries or blueberries. This looks heartier.
