I've been loving muesli with yogurt left in the fridge overnight ... overnight muesli I guess?

janetha said...

nice recipes, thanks! ever since heather (above) said cereal addicts should try muesli i have been looking for some without raisins, but every variety i see has them! (i hate raisins)~but your recipe just calls for oats.. so what is the difference between this summer muesli and overnight oats? either way it looks delicious, i love peaches!

janetha said...

It is way too hot for oatmeal right now, I have been mostly sticking with Kashi cereal and berries.

Eve said...

Great recipes!

Matt said...

I have been making a lot of cereal/granola bowls with greek yogurt. That stuff is crack!

marathonmaiden said...

on hot days? i make NOTHING and rely on cold cereals, yogurts, fruits and anything that does not have to be cooked. kind of lame and lazy but i hate that feeling you get when your body/belly is warmer than the outside temp!

Fabulous recipes. That muesli sounds great! Can you keep it in the fridge for a while?

Oh how I wish I could revert from my standby bowl of cereal and ice cold soy milk. I do; however, change up the cereal mix everyday.
It always starts with 1/4 C of Fiber Twigs, 1/4 C of Flax flakes, and then whatever fun find I have (some favorites are kashi, granola, puffins, or rasin bran)
I then put my ice cold (and yes, its ice cold because I let the milk sit over ice for a few min and pop it in the freezer until ready to pour) and finally top the bowl with a ton of fresh berries.

This is so devine and totally fills my tummy every morning. I am always entirely full for HOURS!

Good luck with your breakfasts. You're bound to find some great variations.
