Toasted Oat & Coconut Muesli

This perfectly portable adaptation of classic muesli — a traditional Swiss breakfast made with uncooked oats and dried fruit — features chia seeds, toasted coconut, and candied ginger for a sweet yet savory bite that might just change the way you think about breakfast.

“I was fully prepared to be completely “eh” on this whole muesli situation,” blogger and author Joy Wilson (who you may know as Joy the Baker) said of this recipe. “I didn’t think cold oats could surprise me, and yet … they totally did.”

For a super healthy —yet surprisingly satisfying — breakfast, simply prepare your muesli the night before, pop it in the refrigerator, and it will be ready to enjoy in the morning. Talk about a time-saver!
