Originally from Switzerland, muesli’s an oat-based breakfast cereal that’s similar to granola. But instead of baking the oats in the oven, they’re soaked overnight in milk, yogurt, or a mixture of both, then topped with dried fruit or nuts. This recipe makes enough muesli for one person, but you can double, triple, or quadruple the ingredient quantities and soak the oats in a larger container for more servings.
