I’ve been dancing around the idea of making muesli for some time now, and one recent Saturday morning I finally made it happen. A quick Wikipedia search turned up a bit of background and basic approach to the dish. I loved the idea of a grated apple making up the bulk of the ingredients.
I tossed some pantry items together and let it soak in some water for about 20 min, then added the shredded apple (not peeled), stirred it all together and topped with a little milk.
I was instantly hooked. It was so easy, simple, healthy, and refreshing. The next day I made it again for breakfast, and on the third day mixed up a couple of jars of it to have on hand.
- 8 dried apricots, diced into 1/4″ pieces
- 1/2 c roasted unsalted pumpkin seed kernels
- 2 tbsp flax seeds
- 1/3 c almonds, raw and roughly chopped
- 1/3 c walnuts, toasted pieces
- 4 c old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/3 c raisins
Each time I make a bowl, I stir together 1/4 c of the muesli and 1/4 c water with a dash of sea salt. I let it sit in a bowl for about 30 min., while I shower and get ready. Then I grate 1/2 of on apple and mix it in, topping it all with some milk.
