Author Notes

I used to think that truly authentic bircher muesli—the kind I ate as a kid at my great-aunt's home in Oftringen, Switzerland—wouldn't be possible without whole milk or yogurt. But homemade, unstrained macadamia milk creates a perfect base for this sweet, rich, and comforting breakfast. —Gena Hamshaw
