Traditional Muesli Facts
Muesli is Swiss and came about in 1900. It was simply raw oats soaked overnight in water or juice and then served with nuts, fruit and yogurt. A Swiss doctor invented it and thought it would make a healthy breakfast for his patients.
Fresh cranberries can be used instead of dry one although in a smaller quantity. Cranberries are great for cereals as they add a bit of tart to the mostly sweet taste that fruit generally brings.
