Swiss Bircher Muesli Recipe

I love sharing various recipes with the readers here on the TwoClassyChics blog and over the years…we’ve shared some great ones with all of you. On top of that, we get a lot of “guest post recipe requests” and while I don’t honor all of them, I do honor a few when I think it’s a recipe that all of you would enjoy.

Today’s guest recipe is from Monica Heather Auslander, MS, RD, LD/N is the Owner of Essence Nutrition, LLC launching January 4th, 2016 in Coral Gables. It’s a quick recipe that is easy-to-prepare and definitely on the healthy side.

    Although I often eat oats I haven’t tried the overnight oats which would probably combine flavors better. This recipe sounds good, but doesn’t include the cranberries or raspberries shown In the photo which I would definitely want to add to it.

    I’ve never really tried muesli, but it sounds pretty good. I love mixing these types of things up in my yogurt, so this isn’t far removed from that.

  3. I’ve only recently jumped on the “overnight oats” bandwagon, and now it’s one of my favorite breakfasts. I love this muesli recipe–with the added nuts and seeds, it seems like it would be robust and filling, and healthy, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  5. I love overnight oats for breakfast, which is similar to bircher muesli except without the chopped apple – so I’ll have to try out this recipe sometime! It looks delicious and super convenient for busy mornings.

  6. I will have to try this with the free nonfat half gallon milk I picked up from the Kroger freebies last week. Normally I don’t have milk on hand but do have the rest of the ingredients. Usually recipes are too sweet for me and in this one I’d leave out the honey and enjoy the sweetness of the apple.
