Food Fridays: Healthy Breakfast Simplified

I woke up this morning and headed into the kitchen with the intention of making tea, and instead found myself making homemade muesli.

 

(The tea happened a bit later)

 

I recently fell into a breakfast rut, tired of some of my favorites.  I used to keep a bag of Bob’s Red Mill muesli in my pantry, but I took it out of the rotation when I tired of it.

 

I’m glad I did because it led me to realize how simple it is to make my own (and much more cost effective).

 

Muesli is flexible – you can add what you like or your body is craving, and you can eat it cold (either with milk or yogurt) or warm.

 

It also makes the perfect on-the-go mason jar meal.

 

Xandra’s 5 Minute Breakfast Muesli:

muesli2 cups rolled oats

1/4 cup wheat germ

1 tsp (or to taste) cinnamon

1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 cup sliced almonds

2 tbs coconut flakes

2 tbs chia seeds

1 cup unsweetened raisins

Combine ingredients in a bowl, and serve over yogurt, in milk, or warmed on the stovetop with milk.

Store remaining muesli in a glass storage container.

Peace, Love, and Wellness,

      That’s the best part Noelle! I’m loving creating new recipes with the odds and ends I’ve got in the pantry.
