Homemade Muesli (Healthy Breaksfast)

Muesli is a breakfast and brunch dish based on raw rolled oats and other ingredients including grains, fresh or dried fruits, seeds and nuts, and may be mixed with cow's milk, soy milk, almond milk, yogurt or fruit juice. Muesli is available in a packaged dry form, ready made, or freshly made.

Muesli can also be freshly prepared using either dry rolled oats or whole grain oats that have been soaked in water or fruit juice. Other common ingredients are additional grated or chopped fresh fruit (e.g., bananas, apples, berries, grapes, mango, Plum), dried fruit, milk products (e.g., fresh milk, yogurt, cream, condensed milk, cottage cheese, or nondairy milk substitutes), lemon juice, ground nuts, seeds, spices (especially cinnamon), honey and muesli mix.

Packaged muesli is a loose mixture of mainly rolled oats or cornflakes together with various dried fruit pieces, nuts, and seeds. It commonly contains other rolled cereal grains such as wheat or rye flakes. There are many varieties, which may also contain honey, spices, or chocolate. This dry packaged muesli can store for many months and served quickly after mixing with milk, yogurt, coffee, hot chocolate, fruit juice, or water. If desired, pieces of fresh fruit may be added. Alternatively, the mix may be soaked overnight in milk and then served with fresh fruit or compote to taste.

This homemade muesli is one of my favorite healthy breakfast choices, it's packed with nutrients and fiber, is vegan, gluten free and low in sugar. Sugar is one of the biggest issues with bought muesli, or 'granola', it's mental how much they cram in there! This muesli is also cheap, simple to make and so yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Check out the step by step recipe below and stay healthy!!!!!!!!!!
