Need a breakfast that’s fast, easy, and perfect for meal prep? Then you need homemade Muesli!
Muesli takes your basic breakfast cereal to the next level. Extremely versatile and customizable, this whole grain based breakfast blend is loaded with fiber, healthy fats, and protein. Having a bowl of muesli in the morning is a filling, healthy way to start your day.
If you’ve never had muesli before, it originated from switzerland and is traditionally served with sweetened condensed milk and grated apple. Muesli today generally refers to oats mixed with dried fruit, nuts, and seeds. Think lower sugar, unbaked granola. If you’re feeling extra plucky though, I’d recommend toasting the oats to add a bit of nuttiness to your meal. But if you’re like me, you bring the nutty all on your own.
It’s usually served chilled, like overnight oats, but you can also enjoy it with milk or as a topping to yogurt or smoothie bowls.
The dry mix also lasts for months (if it lasts that long). Taking only a minute or two to prepare, It makes the ideal make ahead breakfast for your week. All you need to do to have a healthy breakfast waiting for you in the morning is add a few scoops to a jar, add some milk, and let it thicken up in the fridge overnight. In the morning, top it with some fresh fruit, nut butter, and honey. This is the recipe for one of my favorite blends, but one of the best parts about this recipe is that it’s completely customizable. Feel free to switch up the nuts, seeds, and dried fruit to suit your preferences and what you have on hand.
