Recipe Notes

This recipe yields a total of 4 1/2 cups of muesli. Nutrition facts are for a serving size of 1/4 cup.

COOK'S TIPS AND RECIPE VARIATIONS:

  • You can use any type of nuts/seeds/fruit that you love. Try swapping out the almonds for pecans or walnuts; use raisins instead of cranberries; try chopped dried apricot instead of dates; or use sesame seeds or pumpkin seeds instead of the sunflower seeds.
  • I love a touch of salty crunch in my muesli recipe, so I use roasted, salted pumpkin seeds instead of raw sunflower seeds. It adds the perfect contrast to the sweet, chewy fruit!
  • Prepare a muesli recipe overnight by stirring together muesli and milk or yogurt in the evening. Keep the bowl covered and refrigerated while you sleep, and then wake up to a ready made breakfast! You can warm the muesli in the microwave or enjoy it straight from the fridge!
  • Try adding some diced fresh fruit to your muesli just before serving. For instance, I like to top a bowl of Greek yogurt or cottage cheese with muesli and diced apple. Stir it all together and you've got a lovely combination of flavors and textures!
  • This muesli is also a great warm breakfast when it's cold outside. Just cook it exactly like you would a regular bowl of oatmeal. This version is simply more interesting than the plain stuff!
  • When I have leftover cranberry sauce in my refrigerator, I love to combine yogurt, muesli and the cranberry sauce together for a true treat!
