Happy Tuesday Guys! The sun might be shining but boy is it a cold one this morning. I think that is the best part about living in Calgary, even when it’s crazy cold it is so bright and sunny that unless you're out in it, you can almost forget it’s the middle of winter.

So today I’m sharing a recipe that I have been wanting to make for a while now. This Bircher Muesli is such a convenient breakfast and the original overnight oats!

So I think the best part of this is that you can make a big batch, eat it all week, but top it with something different every day so you don’t get sick of it.

I generally keep it pretty simple with some nuts and coconut but you could add fruit, preserves, trail mix, really anything you can think of.

Now I tend to like mine fairly tart so I use the Granny Smith apples, but if you like things more on the sweet side feel free to substitute for any apple you like. This is a great recipe to experiment and make it your own!
