Veteran – What's for Breakfast: MUESLI


When it comes to breakfast, I tend to find something that I like…and I am able to eat it most every morning for weeks.  Then slowly I find something else that sounds good and I am able to eat that for weeks.  A week or two ago, I had been eating STEEL CUT OATS for breakfast most mornings (check out our recipe in our recipe section here).  Within the last week I have started eating a new breakfast…


Right now, I am loving MUESLI!


Maintanence Mommy added a wonderful Muesli recipe to our recipe section- this is the RECIPE that I use.  Muesli is basically soaked oats, grains, nuts & seeds (raw) eaten with fresh fruit.

I don’t add all the ingredients listed…but that is the great thing about this recipe, you don’t have to have all the ingredients to make a wonderful breakfast Muesli.  You could make Muesli using oatmeal, coconut and cinnamon if you wanted to.


Here is what I do:


I add all the ingredients that I want to a container and shake it up well.  I place this container in the freezer.  I make a double recipe so it will last me weeks- and it is ready when I need it.

Right when I wake up…I pour 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of the mixture into my bowl and pour the same amount of rice milk over the top.

I let is soak in the bowl all morning- while I am getting ready, exercising, and getting the kids ready for school.

I let the MUESLI soak until the ingredients have softened- which is usually about 2 hours or so.

Then I chop up a variety of fruit and mix it in- and I sometimes add some chopped raw walnuts and ground flax seed for extra nutrients (Why walnuts and flax seed?  See my EFA blog here).

I usually always add chopped apples and pears…but sometimes I add cut up grapes and bananas.  Blackberries make it extra yummy!


This is such a EASY and YUMMY breakfast!  You have to try it!
