What Is Overnight Muesli?
The creation of muesli cereal is credited to Swiss physician and nutritional pioneer Dr. Maximilian Bircher-Benner who developed it around 1900.
He prepared muesli with milk or cream, a squeeze of citrus juice, often with a sweetener such as honey, as well as grated apple, and then soaked it overnight. His overnight muesli recipe has been referred to as Bircher muesli.
This Overnight Muesli In A Jar is the vegan meal prep-inspired take on Bircher muesli.

Overnight Muesli In A Jar: FAQs
What if I forget to soak muesli the night before?
No worries if you forget to start the process the night before! Even after a short 10-15 minute soak, the muesli will start to soften and will be ready to eat.
How long does overnight muesli last?
Overnight oats maintain their freshness and quality for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
Can you make overnight muesli a week in advance?
Overnight muesli can absolutely sit in your fridge for longer than overnight without compromising its texture, so it is totally meal prep friendly. However, overnight muesli only lasts up to 4 days in the refrigerator, meaning you can only prep it for up to 4 days in advance. Prep it on Sunday, for breakfasts up to Thursday!
