A gluten-free, dairy-free oat breakfast that is hearty and satisfying for the whole morning

Bircher muesli (800x600) 

Sometimes I want a change from the normal.  For me normal breakfast is granola (just check out all the granola recipes I have, like this one, and this one, and this one, and don’t forget this one!)

When I can get gluten-free oats, my favorite breakfast is this – I invented it one summer when I realized that porridge (or oatmeal) didn’t really work for me when it was warm in the mornings.    It’s as simple as putting oats and water together in a bowl (or jar) in the fridge overnight, then adding yogurt and dried fruit in the morning, mixing it all together and eating it.  Simple!  And it fills me up until lunch time … bonus!
