Homemade Breakfast Muesli

I grew up eating my fair share of Muesli in Germany. When I first came to the US, it was hard to find it here. I started making my own and while there are plenty of different kinds of Muesli available now, I still prefer to make my own. It only takes a few minutes to mix together and I can tweak it just the way I like it. By making your own breakfast blend of oats, fruits, nuts and seeds, you can get a mixture you love, know exactly what’s in it and save a few pennies as well. Give it a try. Muesli is great with milk, almond milk or yogurt.

Homemade Breakfast Muesli
  • 3 cups mixed nuts and seeds of your choice (i.e. sunflower seeds, cashews, almonds, pecans)
  • 8 cups rolled oats
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups coconut
  • 2 cups bran
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup grape seed oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups mixed chopped dried fruit of your choice (i.e. cranberry, apricot, pineapple)
  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine nuts and seeds, oats, bran, coconut and cinnamon and mix well.
  3. Heat honey in a small saucepan, until very runny. Add oil and vanilla. Pour into the dry ingredient mixture and combine well.
  4. Spread the mixture into 2 large roasting dishes and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes. Stir occasionally. The mixture should be golden brown and crisp. Allow mixture to cool, then add dried fruit and combine.
