Morning Muesli Recipe

An easy Muesli Recipe for breakfast.

My morning ritual goes something like this – wake up around 6:30 or 7am, take Julius for a walk, then check emails until I realize, HEY I’m hungry.  Most of the time it’s just half a melon, but on days when I want something more substantial I’ll reach for some yogurt, some fruit, and some muesli.  I used to make a lot of overnight oats, but lately I’ve found that when I take the time to prep a jar, I never feel like eating it the next day.  This muesli recipe is basically overnight oats except much more flavorful (thanks to toasting) – and I can do it last-minute.

I like to make a big batch on Sunday and keep it in the freezer for the week.  In the morning, mix it with some yogurt and water, milk of your choice, or juice – then top with fruit.  If you like it sweet, add honey/maple syrup/stevia.

      Yes! It thaws pretty quickly but let it sit for about 5-10 minutes in the soaking liquid/yogurt.

      Salt brings out the flavor in all recipes – including sweet ones!
