what's all the fuss about?

Have you seen a plethora of posts about what people are calling "overnight oats" lately? Looks tasty, sounds tasty, but isn't it just muesli? I thought I'd see what all the fuss was about:

Yes, I agree, a tasty breakfast! Hot oatmeal doesn't sound very appealing to me during the summer, (and frankly, not much during the winter, either,) but this is a creamy, cold, and delicious way to get those whole grains in. I made this bowl with 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 cup almond milk, a couple dashes of Penzey's baking spice, and a small handfull each of slivered almonds and dried cherries.

What would you add to your bowl of muesli?

I'd probably add chocolate! ... That might be pretty good actually.

Good call on the cold breakfast--it is super humid and gross out!

What is in "baking spice"? It sounds interesting :-)
