Muesli is an ideal healthy breakfast option as it’s an amazing source of sustainable energy from the slow-burning, complex carbohydrates, also with loads of trace vitamins and minerals and with it being minimally processed it completely makes the grade of “whole food”. Depending on the recipe, the healthy benefits of muesli include:
- Rich in Fibre
- Sustained energy from the complex carbs
- Cholesterol controlling abilities
This Muesli recipe uses four grains as well as dried fruit and nuts and seeds to make a deliciously healthy breakfast!
What’s in it?
1 cup medium or thick rolled oats/oat flakes (can be toasted)
1 cup rolled rye flakes
1 cup rolled triticale / or bran flakes
1 cup rolled wheat flakes
1/2 cup dried apricots
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or sliced/slivered almonds
1/4 cup whole flaxseeds or flaxseed meal
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raisins
Mix the ingredients together in a large bowl. Transfer to an airtight container. If storing for longer periods, consider keeping the cereal in the freezer or refrigerator.
Cold Muesli Instructions: (my favourite) Soak 1/4 cup Muesli in 1/2 cup yogurt, milk, soy milk or fruit juice for 5-10 minutes. 1 serving.
Hot Muesli Instructions: Add 1/4 cup Muesli to 1/4 cup water, milk or soy milk and bring to a boil. Simmer for 3-5 minutes. You can also microwave Muesli in a large bowl on high for 3-5 minutes, stirring once halfway through. 1 serving.
Lovely healthy stuff, enjoy!!
