Frankly, I have lost all my faith in packed products. They’re doing more harm to us than any good. All of us are just blinded by those flimsy ads and celebrity endorsements coming up every day. So think before you stock up your shelf with five kinds of cereals bought from the supermarket. In the past few months, I have been making several changes in the way I eat. And in this endeavour to eat clean, I am trying to make things at home, at least whatever is in my potential and timeline. That’s how I turned up to research for muesli recipe.
I utilised my Sunday morning by batch making muesli for the coming week. People who prefer granola over muesli, you might want to note that it is as easy to make at home. I prefer muesli because it’s a healthier option as compared to granola. I am sharing my healthy muesli recipe with you all. In the end, I will also mention how you can make it into a granola.
- Rolled Oats (I use the plain Quaker Oats easily available in the market) [Bye bye Cancer, Blood Pressure, Obesity, Heart Diseases]
- Pumpkin seeds [Yayy! Immune system]
- Powdered flaxseeds [Hello, Omega-3 fatty acids]
- Walnuts [Hello Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, and essential Omega-3 fatty acids]
- Dried dates [Better digestion, nervous system and skin]
- Almonds [Lower your cholesterol levels]
- Dried coconut powder (You can also use coconut flakes) [Convert your LDL (bad cholesterol) to HDL (good cholesterol)]
Now all you need to do is mix up all the ingredients. They’ll look somewhat like this.
I did not have chia seeds but add them to the mixture if you have any.
That’s how my muesli look.
In case you’re a granola fan, you will be required to bake your oats with some vegetable oil, maple syrup (or whatever sweetener you prefer) and salt until they are golden brown. You can also roast them.
You can have this with milk or yoghurt. I love having my muesli with milk mostly. I also add some fruits to make it healthier. I often make this yummier by adding half a spoon of unsweetened cocoa powder to my milk.
This is a perfect healthy breakfast recipe for your busy early mornings. If you’re one of those who tend to miss their breakfast due to the rushed hours, I suggest you keep some of it in your office drawer so that you can have it once you reach work. Not just a time saver, this muesli is also pocket-friendly.
Do try this and let me know how it turned out for you.
Signing off for now. See you soon!
