We love a full English as much as the next vegan, but sometimes you have to go for something a little bit healthier like a vegan bircher muesli.
You all must know by now that we love overnight oats, and bircher muesli seemed to be the next logical step – as the Queen of overnight oats.
It may've even started the Instagram trend for overnight oats. Who knows? Who cares? It's tasty anyway, so try this vegan bircher muesli!
Did you know that the creation of muesli is credited to Swiss physician and nutritional pioneer, Maximilian Bircher-Benner? The recipe consisted of oats, raw apples, condensed milk, nuts and lemon juice and it led Dr. Bircher-Benner to radically improving the health of many of his patients. We think that's cool, but a vegan version is better.
