Muesli 101

I actually sent this to my sister earlier this morning and thought this would make a great blog post! Enjoy 🙂

 

MUESLI

Pronounced “moose-lee,” it is a European breakfast cereal that normally comes pre-packaged and is high in calories and sugar. It’s basically composed of oats, dried fruits and nuts.

Making homemade muesli guarantees healthy, clean food going into your body at the most important meal of the day–breakfast!

Start with a base of basic rolled oats. I usually use 1/3 cup or more. Then start adding your extras, usually no more than 2 Tablespoons each. Here are some suggestions that I use. . . never tried the veggies before but is sounds legit, haha. Mix and match, making sure you have at least one nut (for fat) and dried fruit (for energy):

NUTS
almonds
walnuts
pecans
almond butter
peanut butter

DRIED FRUIT
raisins
prunes
dates

FRESH FRUITS
banana slices on top
apple chunks
orange chunks

berries of any kind–mmm

pineapple

SEEDS
sesame
sunflower
sunflower seed butter
pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
chia
flax

EXTRAS
unsweetened shredded coconut
spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, etc.)
cereal (puffed rice lends to a fun texture)
baked sweet potato chunks
grated carrot/zucchini (mild veggies)
chocolate chips :3

There you go! Top it off with some icy cold milk of any kind and enjoy. It’s sooo good and you don’t even need to add any sugar to it!
