There are a ton of muesli recipes around, however, this is MY muesli recipe. I went a year without eating it because when I was pregnant, I had an aversion to it! I almost forgot how to make it. So I will not forget again, I am posting it here for safe keeping. Remember, this is just a guideline. This is very tasty! I even make a version of it for my one year old without nuts and whole oats ground in the food processor. Muesli is supposed to give you more energy because it has ingredients that are "alive" rather than "dead." In other words, do not use processed ingredients.
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1⁄4 cup raisins or 1⁄4 cup other dried fruit
- 1 teaspoon wheat bran (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon walnuts, chopped
- 2 tablespoons apples, chopped or 2 tablespoons other fresh fruit
- 2 tablespoons vanilla yogurt
- cinnamon (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix the oats, dried fruit, and wheat bran with enough milk to cover the oats. Any dried fruit will work just fine. I love dried cherries in muesli. My husband uses soy milk rather than cows milk.
- Soak the mixture for at least 30 minutes but preferably overnight.
- In the morning, drain off the milk.
- Scoop enough muesli in a bowl for one serving. Top with walnuts, yogurt, and any fresh fruit. Strawberries and peaches are also very yummy in muesli.
- Sometimes I top it with a dash of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey.
- All of these measurements are approximate. Use your judgment. I like to make enough for about 3 days so it is relatively fresh when I eat it.
