  • 1 cup Shredded apples from 1 large or 2 small apples
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats gluten-free certified
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2-3 tablespoons sliced almonds or more if you want
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or any other milk of your choice
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond yogurt or any other yogurt of your choice, like soy, coconut, milk, etc.
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ½ cup mixed berries or any other seasonal fruit
  • a few fresh mint leaves as garnish optional


  • Place the shredded apples, oats, chia seeds, sliced almonds, almond milk, almond yogurt, cinnamon, and maple syrup in a bowl. Mix to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • When ready to eat, divide the muesli in between 4 bowls, top them off with berries and garnish with a few fresh mint leaves.



  • This recipe would serve 4 people in 1/2 to 2/3 cup portions. If you are serving a crowd, feel free to double the recipe.
  • The beauty of this recipe is that it is endlessly customizable. In place of milk and yogurt, you can use any plant-based milk or yogurt you like (or even cows milk and yogurt). Similarly, you can use any nuts and fruits. 
  • How long does muesli last? As long as it is kept in an airtight container, this healthy overnight muesli will keep fresh for up to 4 days.
  • Do you eat overnight oats cold? Many prefer eating this dish straight from the fridge for a cold muesli breakfast. However, you can also make your morning extra cozy by heating this dish before you serve it.
