Healthy Breakfast Recipe: Muesli

If you are looking for easy and quick breakfast options that are still healthy, try mixing yourself up some muesli. It’s easy to make ahead and store. I know you can buy pre-made muesli, but it’s very easy to make for yourself. You can also customize it the way you want it!

Here’s my muesli recipe. I make it over the weekend and store it in an old oatmeal container. I don’t add any sugar or sweetener because I find that using almond milk adds enough sweetness for me. I also don’t like storing it in the fridge so I don’t add ingredients like wheat bran that should be refrigerated.

I know some people eat muesli raw but I prefer it hot. I heat ½ cup of muesli with 1 cup of almond milk in the microwave each morning for about 2-3 minutes depending on the strength of your microwave. Delicious!

Quick and Easy Muesli

1 cup quick rolled oats
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup golden raisins (or other dried fruit)
1/4 cup chopped dried dates
1/2 cup raw pepitas (or chopped almonds, walnuts or other nuts)
1/2 cup raw or toasted sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix all ingredients (add more or less of the dried fruit and nuts as per your personal taste) in a large bowl. Store in an air-tight container.

To make hot muesli, add 1/2 cup mix to 1 cup almond (or soy or dairy) milk and heat in microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. Careful when you take it out, it will be hot!
