The recipe for this delicious muesli was published in the Australian Gourmet Traveller, in 1994, at the request of a reader who had enjoyed it at one of the Holiday Inn hotels. This is our adaptation, which we love to have as a treat on Sunday mornings. Preparation time does not include leaving the mixture overnight.

This was exactly what I wanted it to be! I replaced the sugar with extra honey, and omitted the apples and sultanas. I used cinnamon and raspberries, I also added wheatgerm and ground sunflower and pumpkin seeds. It was delicious, thanks for posting!

I had this muesli at the Hilton Malta some 8 years ago, but couldn't find one, until now. I omitted the vanilla and cream and replaced the sultanas with raisins. increased the yogurt to a cup. thanks for the great recipe!

Oh wow! I'm one of those who craves 'breakfast' food at any time during the day, so I decided to treat myself to this for dinner today. Scaled it down to 1 serving and didn't use the optional apples. Used bananas as the fruit, added a dash of cinnamon, and skipped the cream altogether. Only refrigerated this for about 30 minutes before devouring it greedily :) Easy, fabulous, and without the cream, very healthy. And, amazingly, the oats doesn't taste 'raw' either! Thank you! Will definitely be making this often.
