Muesli Recipe

by | Jan 16, 2014 | Health, Recipes | 3 comments

Continuing with my resolution to share simple ways to incorporate healthy foods into your diet, here is my Muesli recipe. Made with rolled oats, it is packed with healthy fiber and nutritious nuts and seeds. Soaking the muesli overnight makes the nuts and seeds easier to digest.

Oats have been found to lower bad cholesterol levels in the blood, lower the risk of type 2 diabetes, and the risk of certain types of heart disease and cancer. Studies also have shown oats help stabilize blood sugar in Type 2 diabetes patients. Serving your muesli with chopped fruit boosts the flavor and health benefits.

I first had Muesli at a bed and breakfast in Switzerland. They served it cold with sliced bananas. My family likes the version below, heated. Put it together the night before. Heat and enjoy in the morning.

Per Serving:

¼ – 1/3 cup rolled oats

1 Tbsp. raisins

1 tsp. flax seeds or hulled sesame seeds

1 Tbsp. chopped almonds

2 Tbsp. sunflower seeds

½ cup water

dash cinnamon

¼ tsp. vanilla

Multiply the recipe according to how many servings you want. Combine the ingredients in a pot, sized to fit the amount you’re making. Refrigerate overnight. Before serving, heat it up on the stove. Stir as needed. You’re warming it, not cooking it. It can be eaten cold, but we like it warm. Serve with chopped apples and pure maple syrup.

    This is very yummy. I have a similar oatmeal recipe for my son.

    1/2 a cup of oat
    3/4 cup of water
    a dash of cinnamon
    3-4 medium size of blackberries
    1/2 of a banana

    Cook oat with cinnamon according to the package. Once cook, mix fruit. Wait 3 minutes to allow oatmeal to cool down. Serve it.

    My son loves blackberries with oat, but refuses to eat it individually. He is getting all the antioxidants.

      Marie, thanks for sharing this. It sounds delicious.

    Someone emailed and asked if rolled oats are the same as oatmeal. Yes. Oatmeal is what we call the cooked cereal. As I understand it, steel cut oats are not steamed when processed like rolled oats and require longer cooking when you are preparing oatmeal. In muesli, soaking softens the oats so you don’t need to cook them.

    Another question was, do you need to grind the seeds? Not if you soak them. If you sprinkle seeds on food, you should grind or pre-soak them to enhance their digestion. I use a small electric coffee grinder used only for nuts and seeds.
