Bircher muesli is a clean eating, vegan overnight oats recipe. Made with unprocessed ingredients, including rolled oats, real fruit, and healthy nuts.
I started making Bircher Muesli after reading Gayelord Hauser’s, 1963 book, Treasury of Secrets, in college. I was into my super healthy eating phase. Gayelord Hauser was a nutritionist who was way ahead of his time. One of the recipes of his is Bircher-Muesli. It’s basically rolled oats, which, instead of being cooked, are soaked overnight.
This makes a fast breakfast, since you can grab what you’ve prepared the night before, add some sliced or shredded fruit and chopped nuts, and maybe a drizzle of honey. Then, either eat it at home or take it to work.
Bircher Muesli originated in Switzerland, right around 1900, and was served in spas as a healing food. It was a “raw food” before raw foods were hip.
If you don’t like coconut milk, use regular milk, soy or almond, or even yogurt. I hope you love your breakfast on the go!
