Our muesli is toasted to give it a pleasing, nutty flavor. You can keep it interesting by changing the nuts or fruits as you like. Eat this hot or cold and feel fueled through your busy mornings.
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup sliced almonds
½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 cup raisins
½ cup dried cranberries
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°.
Spread oats onto a baking sheet. Bake 5-7 minutes or until fragrant, then stir. Add almonds, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds to the top of the oats and bake another 5 minutes or until the nuts are fragrant. Remove from oven and let cool. Add raisins and cranberries and stir to combine. Keep in air tight container.
Eat cold with a bit of sweetener and milk, or add a few tablespoons of maple syrup or honey, a little milk and microwave for 2-3 minutes for a hot breakfast.
Plant Chef Club Tip:
This hearty cereal is a snap to make, and keeps for several months when stored in an air-tight container.
Select the dried fruits, seeds and nuts that you enjoy most. Give larger items like walnuts and dried apricots a rough chop before adding. Add fresh fruit or berries to individual servings to liven things up a little!
