My Homemade Muesli

Muesli

muesli with berries

I eat my homemade muesli every workday morning for a crunchy high protein start to my day that keeps me full all morning. It’s made with oatmeal, quinoa flakes, raw nuts and seeds, and a dash of cinnamon for sweetness and flavor. I serve it with fresh fruit such as berries or peaches and 1% milk.  (I used freeze-dried blueberries from Trader Joe’s when fresh fruit was out of season.)

muesli ingredients: Makes 8 cups (8 servings)

4 cups rolled oats

1 cup quinoa flakes

3/4 cup pepitas (green shelled pumpkin seeds)

3/4 cup sliced raw almonds and/or diced roasted almonds (I get mine from Berkeley Bowl)

3/4 cup shelled raw pistachios

¼ cup ground flax seeds (flax-seed meal) must be refrigerated or frozen

¼ cup chia seeds

¼ cup sesame seeds

1/4 cup hemp seeds (no, you will not get high from them!)

1 tsp cinnamon (to taste)

Mix together and store in airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
