I like a mixture of grains, nuts, and dried fruits for an easy breakfast. I prefer muesli to traditional processed cereals. This is such an easy breakfast to customize creating those textures and flavors your family enjoys!

✏️ Tips & Hints

  • Any of these ingredients (except the oats) can be replaced or left out. Making a recipe for muesli is easy because I usually dump whatever ingredients I have on hand into a container and shake. You can choose various nuts, dried fruit, flakes, and even spices.
