Do you ever find yourself standing in the cereal aisle, baffled by the selection of boxes before you? Some super-sugary, others supposedly-healthy… what to pick? Here’s your answer: none of them! Instead of buying another overpriced, packaged product, try making your own! It’s easier than it sounds, I promise. I first tried homemade muesli a year ago, on a total whim after seeing some mouthwatering photos on foodgawker. I did some research, and found that this breakfast cereal is a breeze to make, and you can boost it with all kinds of nutrient-dense nuts and seeds! This is the perfect use for the flax, hemp hearts and pumpkin seeds in my pantry.
You can serve this muesli in a multitude of different ways. You can quickly prepare it with juice, water, milk, yogurt, even coffee mixed in, or soak in milk overnight. Fresh fruit is also a great addition. How you choose to eat it is up to you – but I did the typical north american cereal thing and just added milk. If you’re used to boxed cereal, this might strike you as a little bizarre at first, but the flavours are really good, and it’s a great way to start your morning with something healthy. This might just put an end to your cereal aisle indecision!
