Cafe-Style Bircher Muesli

IMG_1259I recently spent a week travelling around Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road. If you haven’t visited this part of the world yet, it is definitely a region to add to your bucket list! While holidaying, we were eating out for most meals. On almost every breakfast menu we came across, we spotted the ever-faithful Bircher Muesli. I loved seeing the different flavour combinations added, and it inspired me to create a simple, cafe-style Bircher to quickly whip up at home.

So, what about 2018? I decided that as I enter into my 25th year of existence (is this a quarter-life crisis?) that I would like to focus on improving a current skill. Long story short – I decided on my favourite hobby of baking, trying one new culinary skill or recipe each month. I want to share my experiences with you.
