Author Notes

I’d never eaten or heard of bircher muesli until visiting Australia, but ever since I’ve been making different versions of this basic recipe.
I think bircher muesli kind of sounds like some sort of genus-species name for tree, but I promise it’s better than that. It’s crunchy and creamy. Sweet and nutty. Cold and comforting. Light and filling.
It’s a simple and healthy breakfast that’s easy to throw together the night before and enjoy with whatever toppings and add-ins you fancy.
I topped this version with more yogurt, sliced bananas, pepitas, the first fresh figs of the season and a drizzle of honey. —leah.vandeveldt
