Bircher Muesli

Mueseli 3
Call me Queen of the Larks!  Following my most recent trip to the east coast, I finally vanquished my night owl tendencies.  3-hour jet lag can do that.  Awake and bounding out of bed at 6:30 a.m. day after day, the mornings were my oyster.  I had tamed the beast!  And then…daylight savings.  Since March 13th, I haven’t made it out of bed before 7:20 a.m. – and that’s on a good day.

Even this creamy Bircher Muesli beckoning from the fridge doesn’t rouse me from my rumpled sheets.

Bircher Muesli
Serves 4

½ c. Rolled Oats
2 T. Raw pumpkin seeds
1 T. Flax Seeds (I like the toasted ones from Trader Joes)
1 T. Coconut (unsweetened and ground fine, if possible)
½ c. 2% milk
Pinch Cinnamon
¼ c. Greek yogurt
½ c. Apple, chopped
½ c Fresh fruit (bananas, strawberries, blueberries – whatever is in season!)

Combine oats, seeds and coconut in a bowl.  Pour milk over oats and add cinnamon.  Stir well, cover and place bowl in the refrigerator overnight. Add yogurt and apples and stir well.  Garnish with fresh fruit.
