Muesli originated in Switzerland, and the version also called “mucher bircher”, consisted of raw oats, grated apples, and chopped walnuts mixed with lemon juice, water, and sweetened condensed milk.
Muesli is considered a healthy alternative to a quick breakfast with low sugar content and a mixture of oats, nuts, other seeds, and dried fruits.
The mixture can be combined with one or more liquids, such as milk, almond milk, yogurt, or fruit juice. It can be left to soak for a few hours before being consumed.
- 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup wheat bran
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup shelled pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup raw pecans, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 cup dried cherries
- 1/4 cup dried apricots, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Prepare two baking trays to fry the beans, nuts, and seeds. Preheat oven to 350 ° F.
- Place the oats, wheat bran, salt, and cinnamon on a baking sheet and mix in an even layer.
- Place the almonds, pecans, and nuggets on the second baking sheet. Mix them in an even layer. Put oats on the top shelf and nuts on the bottom. Bake until the nuts are fragrant, 10 to 12 minutes. When ready, remove the baking sheet with the walnuts and set aside to cool.
- Add coconut flakes to the pan over the oats. Bake the pan until the coconut turns golden.
- When ready, take the tray out of the oven and let it cool. The contents of both baking sheets are placed in a large bowl. Add the dried fruit, apricots, and cherries, and mix everything to combine the ingredients well.
- Muesli is ready and, after cooling, can be stored in a sealed container.
