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:
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.
