I tasted muesli on a trip to Switzerland, and when I came home, I made it my way. Keep things interesting (and avoid the mid-morning munchies) by adding different fruits and nuts every day. —Maddie Kirk, Springfield, Pennsylvania

"I made this with vanilla Greek Yogurt & toasted pecans - topped it with berries & the family lived it. So quick & easy! ??"

"You can make it more diabetic friendly by using plain fat-free yogurt instead of the vanilla yogurt, Greek yogurt if you want even more protein, and replacing the maple syrup with sugar-free syrup. That will cut carbs and fat.

The Nutritional Facts for the recipe as is - 36 grams of carbs, but you have to add the carbs for any fruit you inlcude. So, it could put you over the recommended amount of carbs for a diabetic meal, which is 45-60."

"No, jenn, the oatmeal is not cooked. It sits overnight and soaks up the milk and becomes softer, and it's not a hot cereal, it's eaten cold and requires no cooking at all."
