I pretty much always use the same recipe for my overnight oats, with a few swap ins depending on my mood and the season. At Christmas I might spice it up, or in summer just keep it simple with vanilla and maybe some fresh raspberries and pistachio, you can even add cacao powder and make it chocolatey. The best thing about Bircher is that you can top it with almost anything you fancy, any fruits or nuts you happen to have. Just plain old banana with a drizzle of maple/honey/agave is delicious. You can even add nut butters, jam, poached or baked fruits. It can be whipped up in no time on a Sunday night and that's your breakfast sorted for the week.
