  • 2 cups Old-Fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup wheat germ
  • ½ cup raw sliced almonds
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds or roasted, salted pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup dried cranberries or raisins
  • ½ cup chopped dates


  • In a large bowl, toss together all ingredients until thoroughly combined. Store in an airtight container.


This recipe yields a total of 4 ½ cups of muesli. Nutrition facts are for a serving size of ¼ cup.
  • Use whole grain rolled oats (also called "old fashioned oats") instead of steel-cut oats or quick-cooking oats. The quick oats have a tendency to turn to mush when soaked, while the steel-cut oats will be too hard and crunchy to eat raw.
  • I love a touch of salty crunch in my muesli recipe, so I use roasted, salted pumpkin seeds (also called pepitas) instead of raw sunflower seeds. They add the perfect contrast to the sweet, chewy fruit!
  • Prepare a muesli recipe overnight (also called Bircher muesli) 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.
  • For a touch of sweetness, drizzle a bowl of muesli with maple syrup or honey just before serving.
  • This muesli is also a great warm breakfast when it's cold outside. Just cook it with milk exactly like you would a regular bowl of oatmeal. This version is simply more interesting than the plain stuff!
