Prepare a large storage jar with this homemade muesli, and you’ll always have something on-hand during the week. This helps us under the week when things need to be done quickly with the kids and school. My son often eats 2 servings in the morning. It not only tastes terribly good, it also lasts for a long time.
We all probably grew up with cereal for breakfast, whether muesli or other cereals. We like to eat cereal with almond milk. The best thing about this cereal is that it is mostly sugar-free, unless the dark chocolate we use in the cereal has some sugar. It can also be left out easily and replaced with cranberries or other dried fruit. This muesli is not only cheaper to prepare, you also know exactly what is included.
What is muesli?
The original muesli comes from Switzerland from a doctor named Maximilian Bircher-Brenner, who invented the famous Bircher muesli. This cereal consists of oats, grated apples, chopped nuts, lemon juice, water and condensed milk.
Today, a mixture of oatmeal, cereals, nuts / seeds and dried fruits is commonly referred to as cereal. Since the cereal is consumed raw and not baked like granola, we can make it without sugar and oil.
What do you need to prepare homemade muesli?
Here is a small list of everything you need for a homemade muesli:
Puffed kamut or spelt
Dried fruits such as cranberries, raisins, cherries, apricots,
How do you make homemade granola?
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and toast the nuts and oatmeal for about 10 – 15min in the oven. This is how the nuts and oats develop their taste.
Let it cool for about 10 minutes before you pour it into a large glass.
Now put all the ingredients in a sufficiently large storage jar and shake vigorously.
Be creative and make your own muesli mix!
There are so many ready-made muesli mixes in the store, but homemade muesli simply tastes much better and you know exactly what’s in it. You can limit the sugar content to your own taste.
When buying dried fruit, please make sure that no additives such as sulfur and sugar are included.
Roughly, you can adapt to the following muesli formula: The cup is about 250 ml in volume.
4 cups of cereal: 1.5 cups of nuts / seeds: 1 cup of dried fruit
Cereal alternatives: oat flakes, wheat bran, puffed amaranth, puffed quinoa, puffed spelt, millet flakes, puffed kamut
Nuts and seeds: sliced almonds, walnuts, pecans, macadamias, pistachios, cashews, hazelnuts, pumpkin(pepitas) seeds, chia seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, grated coconut
Dried fruits: raisins, cranberries, apricots, cherries, dates, currants, apples, banana chips, freeze-dried strawberries
How to serve muesli
We prefer to eat cereal with almond milk.
You can also eat cereal with yoghurt and fresh fruit.
Make overnight oats out of it.
Make a muesli bar / cereal bar.
Use it in bread dough
Home-made cereal vs. bought cereal
Of course, you can buy ready-made cereal at the store. But isn’t it totally easy to prepare the cereal at home? If it is really stressful, or I have totally missed mixing a muesli, then we sometimes buy cereal or granola. However, home-made cereal tastes a lot better and it is healthier and you can mix it to your own liking. We get sweetness in the muesli through the dried fruits and chopped chocolate, which does not require additional sweetening. And the cereal has healthy fats and proteins thanks to the nuts and seeds.
