Muesli is another great option for a make ahead breakfast that is portable and perfect to eat on the go. The first time I made this I was skeptical about the cold soaked oats and I was about halfway into it before I started to enjoy it. These days, though, I actually look forward to it and start to crave it when I know I have one prepared and waiting for me. I layer mine with yogurt, fruit, and granola in the morning like a parfait. Stewed berries would also make a nice addition and I will be trying it soon.
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup apple juice (or other mild juice)
fruit, fresh or dried
granola or toasted nuts
Combine oats and juice in a bowl or jar and let soak at least 4 hours or overnight in the fridge. Top with a generous amount of yogurt, fruit, and nuts. Add a drizzle of honey, if desired.
*I make three or four jars at a time and keep them in the fridge. They easily keep for a couple of days. I top them with yogurt and fruit once the oats are soaked sufficiently. I add the granola just before eating.
*You can make them smaller or larger, just remember to mix equal parts oats and juice.
