  • 1/2 cup Muesli
  • 1 cup vanilla greek yogurt or dairy-free alternative
  • 2 tablespoon milk or dairy-free alternative
  • 1/4 cup whole fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup roasted chestnuts chopped
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


  • Combine all ingredients and split evenly among two glass jars

Pro Tip: Wait to add toppings like granola, peanut butter, or maple syrup until before serving. This way, they don't get soggy.
How long does muesli need to soak? 
Letting your muesli sit overnight yields the best results but your oat mixture only needs a few hours to become soft. If you're in a time crunch, you can let them soak for 1-3 hours.
What is the best time to eat muesli? 
Although you can eat muesli any time of the day, it does make a delicious breakfast. The whole grains combined with a drizzle of maple syrup and other healthy toppings make for an uber-nutritious breakfast.
