I am so excited to be sharing one of my favorite recipes with y’all today.
It is the best Muesli recipe ever…and so easy too! I think so anyway. ;)
Muesli is so healthy and it’s one of my very favorite things to eat.
It’s so good, I sometimes eat it as a snack when I’m craving something not so healthy! ;)
It does the trick every time…and keeps me healthy.
I mean, look at all that goodness.
What could be better than nuts and berries? Both are so delicious and also so good for you.
I use dried berries but you can even add fresh also when you get ready to eat it.
I do that sometimes too….bananas, fresh blueberries or strawberries, etc.
Just add a bit of almond milk (or dairy milk) and you are good to go!
It’s very filling too, a little goes a long way. :)
I’ll share a few affiliate links for the items I used below. You can see my disclosure here.
And did I mention it was ridiculously easy to make too?
Well, it is.
Here’s the ingredients I used but the sky is the limit.
You can omit and/or add whatever you like.
I do try to get organic, whenever possible, though.
Just chop and add to a large bowl….and mix…..
And this little chopper does a great job (and quick job!) of chopping for me.
There are other, cheaper choppers but this is the exact one I have and have had for years.
Mix it up and put into a airtight container, like this cereal container to store.
I keep it (and all those ingredients shown above) in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.
You’ll notice when you get to the ingredients that I don’t add sugar.
I really want to keep this healthy for me and my family, so I don’t.
If you are used to sweet cereal, you may want to sprinkle a bit of sugar, or whatever, on before eating.
Or you could add it directly to the mix.
I use chopped dates in my muesli recipe which adds enough natural sweetness for me.
The pumpkin seeds I used this particular time are from Trader Joe’s.
They are “pumpkin spice” pumpkin seeds and they are DELICIOUS!
I *think* they are seasonal so don’t get too excited. ;)
BUT definitely look them up next year and stock up!
I stocked up but only have 2 bags left ….and it’s only January. ;)
They are really good on salads too.
I may just have to come up with a recipe similar if I crave them the rest of the year.
If I do, I’ll be sure to share with you all here.
I hope you love this recipe as much as we do! It really is the yummiest, best muesli recipe.
