I've never had muesli before. At least not the right way. On our vacation in January I had a delicious muesli at a breakfast buffet. But I ate it just as a cereal, with milk, and didn't give it time to soak. This Muesli from Super Natural Every Day was super simple to make - just mix a few things together and soak overnight in the fridge while it plumps up full of thinned-out yogurt - and super tasty too.
It got me thinking about other muesli recipes I've seen. There are two in Good to the Grain - one with hazelnuts, rye and quinoa flakes, and dried cherries and cranberries, and another with almonds, pecans, walnuts, spelt and quinoa flakes, figs and apricots - and one on 101 Cookbooks with dried peaches and apples, sweetened with honey. I'm thinking about my own flavor combinations too - mainly apricot and pistachio. I'd also like to try the mixed rolled grains in place of some of the oats for a little variety.
