We are now well into Spring and I have left my oatmeal behind... well not quite! In our household we have changed it up. We are now enjoying an easy to prepare, full fibre, delicious muesli with an awesome variety of nuts and seeds. It is one of my favourite recipes and I thought it was time to share it with you!
Nut and Seed Muesli
- 2 cups of regular or steel cut oats
- 1/2 cup raw, sliced almonds
- 1/2 cup hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup shredded or flaked coconut
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
In a very large glass jar combine all ingredients. Each night take 1/2 cup muesli/person and put it nto a a bowl. Cover the muesli with water or milk of your choice to cover the ingredients. Allow muesli to soak overnight softening ingredients and releasing enzymes making it easier to digest. In the morning add fresh fruit (berries, apples, grapes, etc.), yogurt and a drizzle of honey (optional) to your muesli and enjoy.
If you are looking for a breakfast on the run soak your muesli in a small glass jar overnight, add the yogurt and fruit to the top in the morning. Seal with a lid and eat it later, at your leisure. (Not too much later though, because breakfast is the most important meal of the day!)
