Homemade Muesli

Okay for the record I can never remember how to spell muesli.  I keep thinking its museli… I have no idea why.  It’s the same with the word caesar…. I just will never ever be able to remember how to spell it.  Anyone else have this problem?

Haha okay back on topic :).  So muesli.  I have been hearing so much about this lately for some reason.  I honestly had no idea what it was.  After doing some research, I put together it’s pretty much a lazy way to put together oatmeal in the morning.  All of the toppings are already in it.

Sounds good to me 🙂

A lot of recipes used ingredients like quinoa flakes (which my grocery store didn’t have 😦 ).  And rye flakes (same story).  Rather than going the extra length to get ahold of these ingredients, I decided to come up with a recipe for those of you who may not be able to find them easily either.

If you don’t have any of the ingredients, you can literally swap them out for anything.  Or you can just exclude them altogether.  No baking is involved.

1. 1 cup of oats

2. 1 cup of barley flakes

3. 1 cup of quinoa that’s already been cooked (about 1/4 cup dry)

4. 1/2 cup sliced almonds

5. 1/4 cup golden raisins

6. 1/4 cup wheat germ

Toss all of the ingredients together

and you’re done!

It’s that easy.  You can use it anyway you’d use normal oatmeal whether that be letting it soak in milk or yogurt, or cooking it.

Question: What’s your favorite dried fruit?

  1. Haha, muesli is the transliteration of the swiss word “müsli”, “ue” is the transliteration of “ü” 🙂
