Cranberry Muesli

From: EatingWell Magazine, November/December 2007

There may be as many versions of muesli as there are breakfast cereals, but this one's modeled after the original Swiss wake-you-up—a combination of overnight-soaked grains, nuts, dried fruit and yogurt. Make it the night before and you'll have breakfast ready when you are.

Delicious, easy to make, and versatile. I've used sesame seeds instead of sunflower and experimented with different juices. My favorite is heating frozen berries until they're soft, mashing, and mixing with the juice to total 1/2 cup.

I loved this! Soaking overnight really makes it taste like a delicious oatmeal. Will continue to make.
