I worked in the upscale restaurant at a famous resort many years ago. This restaurant was well-known for their brunch buffet and I was puzzled that they would serve something so unexciting in appearance next to decadent indulgences like smoked salmon and Eggs Benedict. That is until I tasted Bircher Muesli.
After my first bite, I had a new favorite that I enjoyed every chance I had. Now my family enjoys this comforting dish for breakfast. The only problem is that my kids enjoy it so much that they ask for it for a snack, dinner, dessert, or any other excuse they can come up withuntil all of the soaked oats are gone.

Before you plan to enjoy this dish, combine the oats, water, whole wheat flour, and salt in a container with a lid. Stir to combine, cover and place in refrigerator to allow to soak for a minimum of 12 hours.
When you are ready to eat your muesli, heat milk (if you prefer this warm). Combine all remaining ingredients in a large bowl and stir together with soaked oats. Recipe yields about 6 servings.
If you prefer, you can add other fruits or yogurt instead of milk. If you avoid dairy, you can substitute coconut milk or apple juice. To avoid gluten omit the wheat flour or substitute another- gluten free option.
