Recipe by **Tinkerbell**
The original inspiration for this was my Easy, Overnight Muesli (Switzerland) from the Usborne Children's World Cookbook that Gramma gave my son when he first started learning to cook. This version was created when I was soaking the oats one night when DS mentioned that he'd eaten the last apple. He didn't know I had plans for it in the morning. The next morning I used strawberries instead and whatever else was on hand & this recipe was born. :) Muesli is a healthy breakfast cereal, originally created by a Swiss doctor, made up of grains, fruit and nuts. Cook time includes overnight softening of the oats, as there is no actual cooking for this recipe.

I threw in some flax seeds 'cause I have a ton and they're very good for you. I wasn't sure I'd like this without some cinnamon or brown sugar thrown in, but it was good! A much better way to start the day than everyone's usual sugary cereals. I may add in a few things next time just to see what happens, and I'm definitely going to try the apple version, too. Thanks, Tink!
