I feel like we just don’t do muesli enough in this country. I mean, do you ever see it on menus anywhere or hotel breakfast spreads? No.

Oatmeal reigns supreme in these parts but go to Europe and muesli is everywhere. Hmmm…

Tart Cherry Ginger Muesli is like a lazy man's oatmeal. All the tasty ingredients, none of the work!

I don’t quite get it either because muesli is basically the lazy man’s oatmeal and we all know American’s love to be lazy. It’s all the elements of a good bowl of oats but uncooked, allowing you to do with it as you please.

Want to cook it up as oatmeal? Go right ahead! Want to sprinkle it on top of a bowl of yogurt or cottage cheese for a higher protein meal? That works too!

Either way, having a jar of premixed muesli on hand is never a bad thing for breakfasts in a hurry.

Enjoy this tart cherry ginger muesli over cherry swirled yogurt bowls for an easy, nutritious breakfast. Fruity, hearty, nutritious and tasty, these tart cherry yogurt bowls are the perfect start to your day for a sweet take on breakfast.

This tart cherry ginger muesli pretty much puts together everything I’d add to my dream bowl of oatmeal: sweet and tangy dried Montmorency (tart) cherries, little bits of candied ginger, warm spices like cinnamon and cardamom, cacao nibs for crunch, sliced almonds for some healthy, buttery fats and of course, oats. Every bite is as texturally diverse as it is flavor-wise.

Could you sprinkle this generously over a plain bowl of yogurt? Absolutely. But why not accompany that with a quick tart cherry sauce too for a double punch of flavor and nutritional benefits?

When you're craving sweet for breakfast but still want something healthy and nutritious, these tart cherry ginger muesli yogurt bowls are perfect!

Montmorency cherries have long been known for their potential anti-inflammatory properties and helpfulness in aiding in muscle soreness recovery from exercise. Coupled with ginger, an ingredient also known to help reduce inflammation, this tart cherry ginger muesli is perfect for any athlete looking to reap all the recovery benefits possible from their breakfast whether it’s marathon running or high-intensity CrossFit workouts!

Quick and easy, packed with nutritious tart cherries, oats, almonds, cacao nibs and ginger, there's so much to love about these tart cherry ginger muesli yogurt bowls!

And, in one tasty as heck way.
