Happy Mother’s Day!  Hope you all got to spend time with your mamas.  As a gift, Jacob built me 3 raised garden boxes (2 of them pictured below).

I’m excited to get them into the ground and filled with dirt.  Also, I have kale and cucumber beginning to sprout in my DIY egg shell seed starters!  Hooray for 2 year old seeds to still grow!

Today is another Secret Recipe Club reveal day.  This month was super fun for me.  I was given Jennifer of Peanut Butter and Peppers!  Jennifer is a blogger I’ve known since before Hunter was born.  She even guest posted for me once he arrived.  Jennifer loves food and shares so many yummy looking meals, snacks and treats.  I seriously just want her to come and cook for me.  Like every day.  Personal chef????

Okay, it will probably be a no, so I guess I’ll make some food for myself.  The recipe I chose as a no brainer – bircher muesli – AKA overnight oats!

With the warmer temps around here I’ve been eating less and less hot oats –  and that makes me sad!

Soaking your raw rolled oats in liquid (yogurt, milk and juice) plumps them up and ‘cooks’ your oatmeal for you.  No hot stove required.

Jennifer’s bircher muesli is a bit different than previous overnight oats I’ve made.  Normally I go with banana and peanut butter, but here, the flavors are bright and fresh.  OJ and pineapple juice + fresh shredded apple set the tone with natural sweetness.  I went ahead and amped up the fruity flavors with a fig and orange zest Chobani bite.

Emily at Chobani was so sweet and sent me all four Chobani bite flavors to try.  And try I have.  Here are my order of favorites: raspberry with dark chocolate chunks, coffee with dark chocolate chunks, caramel with pineapple chunks, and lastly fig with orange zest.  Obviously, I love me some chocolate!

  1. Ahhhhh!! I am so happy you got me!! I didn’t even realize your were in Group B. I love the changes you made to the recipe! It sounds incredible. Ok, I LOVE Chobani (just like Hunter) and I thought I have tried all their flavors, yet I didn’t realize there was a fig flavor. I have to look for that next time I’m at the store. It’s time for me to go to bed, but now I think I need to make over night oats first!

    HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!! I love the raise garden beds! I can’t wait to see the pictures of it with all your home grown produce!!

    1. I didn’t know you were group B either, so I was suuuuper excited when I saw your name in the email 🙂 It’s always fun to surprise a friend! Find the fig and try… especially in this! Very yummy. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  2. YUM! Great pick! What a delicious breakfast! Actually, I think I could eat this all day long!! I like parfaits when it gets hot. Glad you had a wonderful Mother’s day

  3. Oh my gosh, I have been SO wanting to try overnight oatmeal and now I am absolutely going to do it – your version looks so delicious, not to mention how absolutely ADORABLE Hunter is!! Great choice and so fun you were paired with a friend!

  4. Ooh! Nice Mother’s Day gift! I’m a tad jealous 🙂
    The muesli looks delicious–I will send this to my dad, as he LOVES muesli.
    I always tend to eat the same breakfasts, regardless of how hot it is outside. I lived in Alabama most of my life, and I would eat hot oats even on the hottest day in July!

  5. I just love you Bircher Muesli, it looks delicious, Jennifer has great recipes. This is a great recipe choice for the SRC.
    Have a fun week!
    Miz Helen
