Many of you might be going back to school or have kids going back to school and that means one thing….limited time!
The most challenging part of going back to school for me, is remembering to pack a lunch and think of quick & easy meal ideas. With all the extra work load, it’s nice to cook the shorter recipes or plan ahead.
Muesli is the perfect breakfast to make the night before. You mix oats, a grated apple, yogurt, milk, and a few other ingredients in a bowl. Store it in the fridge overnight then top with fruit in the morning before grabbing on the go! It’s creamy, crunchy, and could not be any easier!
The recipe is perfect for planning ahead and eating on the go. Ever heard of overnight oats? Well muesli is really similar, there’s just other seeds and fruit you put in the mixture overnight.
Muesli is meant to be eaten while cold. At first, I thought this was kinda strange, but I think it plays into the whole, “i have little time but need a healthy breakfast” trend. Since muesli is made with yogurt, I won’t recommend warming it up.
My favorite thing about muesli is the customization. Each bowl of oats is portioned in it’s own bowl so if someone likes peanut butter and someone else like apples, you can change it as you wish. You can top the muesli with your favorite toppings. I like to keep it with the seasons. So, this time of year I love using peaches! I slice them raw and add a bit of sliced almonds for crunch.
