I don’t think our home-made muesli has ever looked exactly the same, as every time we make it, we use different grains, cereals, seeds and dried fruits depending on what we have on hand at the time. Having said that, we do have a general rule of thumb that we try to follow to achieve the right balance of flavours and textures. Contrary to our granola, this muesli is entirely raw, nut-free and unsweetened, apart from the addition of dried fruit. As this muesli isn’t toasted, we prefer to add it to the bottom of a smoothie jar, like in our Upside- Down Breakfast, or serve it with our Strawberry Cashew Milk. This way it soaks up the liquid and becomes soft and slightly chewy, just like Bircher muesli.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
180g rolled oats or a combination of rolled and jumbo oats, choose certified gluten-free if allergic
150g raw seeds
150g unsweetened dried fruit
90g raw wholegrain flakes
50g puffed wholegrains
50g desiccated coconut
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Method

  1. Put all of the ingredients in a large bowl and stir until well mixed.
  2. Pour into a large sealable glass jar and store in the pantry. The muesli can keep for months in the pantry, if sealed.

Note

  • Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, linseeds, sesame seeds and hemp seeds all work well.

Note

  • Sultanas, raisins, currants, cranberries, blueberries, goji berries, roughly chopped apricots, figs, prunes, dates, apple slices and banana chips all work well. However, make sure that they don’t contain added sugars, preservatives or colourings. Alternatively, use freezedried fruit.

Note

  • Barley, corn, rye, wheat, spelt, rice, millet, kamut, sorghum, quinoa, buckwheat and amaranth all work well.
