Tastes good and oh so healthy! I used locally grown red skinned pears and local wildflower honey. The seeds were a mixture of brown flax, golden flax and sesame seeds. Oregon-grown hazelnuts replaced walnuts. A sprinkle of cinnamon was the final touch. Be sure to cover the cereal before placing in the refrigerator or the muesli will take on other food odors! Also, I didn't think about the pears turning brown either. Maybe add a couple drops of lemon juice to the sliced pears to avoid browning...? Reviewed for Veg Tag/October.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 firm pears, cored and grated
  • 120 g oats
  • 1 tablespoon mixed seeds (I used sesame, sunflower and pumpkin seeds)
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped (divided)
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or 1 tablespoon runny honey
  • 100 ml apple juice
  • 100 ml milk or 100 ml water
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt


  1. In a big bowl combine grated pears, oats, mixed seeds, 1 tbs of the walnuts, syrup/honey, apple juice and milk/water. Cover and refrigerate over night.
  2. The next morning divide between two bowls and add 1 tbs of yogurt to each bowl, then top with reamining walnuts. Serve and enjoy!
