During the summer, Angharad from Eating for England did a post about how to make your own muesli. And this looked really interesting to me! So I saved it in my “favorites” and today I FINALLY got around to making my own muesli!!
I followed Angharhad’s guidelines and added 6 C oats, 2 C of a mix of pumpkin seeds/sunflower seeds/chopped walnuts/sliced almonds, 1/2 C shredded coconut, 1 C dried fruit (I used raisins, cranberries, and a few prunes), a bunch of cinnamon (she called for 1 tsp…I put about 10x that haha), sprinkle of salt, 1/4 C brown sugar. mix in large bowl. place is jars/containers and refrigerate (this is a perishable!).
So…how do you serve muesli? Well Miss Angharad did yet another post devoted to just this! “Muesli 4 ways”
To sum up…you can enjoy your muesli:
- old school with milk
- parfait style with yogurt, muesli, fruit, and whatever your little heart desires
- 9 hour soak AKA Over night oats
- 4 layer pancakes
The nine hour soak: 1/2 C muesli, 1/2 C skim milk, 1/4 C vanilla chobani yogurt (soaked overnight), topped with flax, banana, and cinnamon in the morning
this was really really good! A little more watery than my usual overnight oats but that is not really a bad thing. There was a perfect balance of crunch from the seeds and chewiness from plump fruit. love the muesli!
