Simply Sweet Muesli

"If you've never experienced muesli, this one is a good introduction: though filled with nutrient-dense oats, nuts and dried fruit, it's almost sinfully sweet and satisfying. DON'T substitute regular milk; the vanilla here gives an indispensable flavor. Try my recipe below, which you can whip up in a flash."

    This was delicious! I used steel cut oats to give it a bit more crunch, and changed the apple to banana. Over the winter I like eating hot oatmeal for breakfast, but in the summer I like to have something cool and refreshing, but still filling like oatmeal. I think this will be my new favourite summer breakfast!

    Simply wordeful!!! I used regular milk with a dash of vanilla and I left out the cashews. I did buy some cashews but I eat the m all before I manage to make this muslie... Next time I will add some thought. I also added more milk to it, I doubled the ammount. I enjoyed it so much, as a late night snack but I think it will be a regular breakfast as well in the future. Oats can be now healthy and tasty! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I really enjoyed this this morning for breakfast! I halved the recipe and did use regular milk, but added vanilla to it! It was so good and naturally sweet! Thank you, I'm so glad I adopted you for Pick a Chef!


A teenager who loves to cook- weird or what? But yes, it's one of my passions! To me cooking is like an art form- there's always something new and exciting to try, and there are constantly more ideas running around in my head than I know what to do with. Now, to update this page- a little task I haven't done in about two years!! Much remains the same as when I joined what seems like "forever ago": I'm a vegan with many passions: music, yoga, volunteer work, healthy/tasty food (the healthy vs. the tasty seem to run in cycles, haha) - and perhaps most of all, I love the written world. My dearest happy moments are when I am reading, writing, and feeling inspired. I'm in my first year studying at Mount Allison university for a B.A., major in English. However, since this is RecipeZaar, I must note that I'm equally obsessive about food!! Six years have passed since I was twelve and sort-of accidentally converted my family to veganism. Yes, even dad and little bro now greedily dig into their tofu shepherd pie and soy ice cream (well, clearly, one AFTER the other). I'm always on the lookout for foods that will please, and maybe even be healthy for, all of us! Now that I'm in uni and living with my aunt, uncle and cousin in New Brunswick, I still try to help with the cooking a bit. My sweetie cousin, Bilious Pigeon here on Zaar, is a terrific kitchen buddy. We share a penchant for fine coffee. Thankfully, my family here has turned mostly to the vegan side and that makes university life sooo much easier! My posted recipes, those I haven't invented, might come from Vegnews magazine, another website, one of our awesome vegan cookbooks, or friends- but it's virtually guaranteed that I've modified them at least in some way, and if from a book or show, I always acknowledge the original source. After all, I'd want someone to do the same for me. Since returning to the public education system after eight years of homeschooling, I don't have quite as much time in the kitchen as I used to. But I don't let that stifle my creativity! One of my favorite activities is in the summer when I get together with another cousin ~Harriet~, who's also here on Zaar, and we cook as much as we want. Good times! One more thing about me. I'm a Zaar game addict. And proud of it, and I'd advise anyone to join who would like more reviews on their own recipes, not to mention spending time with fun people and trying recipes they might not find otherwise. Please Zmail me with any questions or just to chat. Hope you enjoy, and are inspired by, my ideas! <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="¤t=chefkoalas.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="tag"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=>
