Healthy Recipe: Make Your Own Muesli

Muesli is a traditional breakfast cereal made from rolled oats, fruit, and nuts. Since it's full of such wholesome ingredients, it's really healthy. You can buy it prepackaged, but I prefer to make my own so I can add in extra tasty ingredients that not only add more vitamins and fiber, but enhance the flavor as well.

To see how I make mine,


All you need is a big bowl and ingredients such as these:

Rolled oats
Corn flakes
Spelt flakes
Bran flakes
Puffed rice
Dried cranberries
Dried blueberries
Dried apples
Almond slivers
Sunflower seeds
Flax seeds

Mix a cup each of three different grains, one cup of dried fruit, a half cup of nuts/seeds, and two tablespoons cinnamon. It makes about four 3/4-cup servings. Enjoy with milk or vanilla soymilk. It's a delicious, hearty breakfast that will keep you full until lunch.

This looks really good, but it seems like it would be REALLY expensive by the time you buy all those ingredients!

muesli is a great breakfast food, I like eating mine with soy milk or really cold skim milk. although I prefer granola, because of the crunchiness and the baked oats great flavor. :P

Love it! I have this every morning with yogurt =) but I buy the pre-packaged stuff, which isn't that good of an idea.. there's some sugar added. I should probably get on making my own =\

When I went to Rome, Italy they had this cereal for breakfast at the hotel. It was delicious. You could also include yogurt or soy milk. I will never forget how good it tasted.

I eat müsli everyday as a breakfast as well. I love it and it's my "coffee" in the morning - I can't live without it.
