I’ve had an obsession with oats and coconut yogurt in the last few months. Porridge was my go to breakfast during the winter months. But it’s getting warm now in Australia which means I’ve started craving cold foods.
So what else can I do with oats? Well, bircher muesli (or overnight oats) is the answer! It is such a simple and versatile dish. There’s so much you can do with it and I can’t wait to experiment with a few different combinations. Basically all it requires is soaking raw oats in some sort of liquid overnight (I used almond milk). No cooking required! And to make it more delicious you can always add nuts, seeds, fresh fruit, yogurt, natural sweeteners. The combinations are countless. You can even add some raw protein powder if you need a protein boost in the morning.
And the best thing about it is that breakfast is ready when you wake up, most of the work has to be done the night before (not that it is a lot of work anyway) and all you need to do is add the toppings in the morning. It is also a very convenient breakfast option. If you don’t have time to eat breakfast at home just prepare your oats the night before, pour them in a glass jar and just take it out of the fridge in the morning and take it with you wherever you’re going. Super easy!
