This is a nutritious and delicious breakfast cereal. Use any type of dried fruit you desire! You can also use almonds in place of walnuts if you like. Wonderful when served in bowls with milk and fresh berries or sliced fresh fruit.

Truly excellent and super healthy. I omit the brown sugar (honestly, with the raisins, it doesn't need it) and I also add 1/2 cup sliced almonds to the mix. I have 1/2 cup of the mix every morning, topped by 1 cup of plain lowfat organic yogurt and 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries (defrosted). This breakfast cannot be beat - all the fiber from the muesli and the berries, plus calcium from the yogurt. I call this my "breakfast of champions!" Read More

This is my solution for something besides cold cereal for breakfast. I combine about 3 heaping tablespoons each of meusli and yogurt for a quick and hearty breakfast. Rolled oats give a much better texture and flavor than quick cooking oats. Read More

This cereal is really good. I like oatmeal so I added an extra half cup of oats. I also used a mixture of half raisins half dried apricots and I left out the sugar to make it a little healthier. Read More

This Muesli recipe is a terrific base to start with to create a Muesli of your own. I added almond slivers diced prunes and flax seeds to this base and finished it off with a quarter cup of chopped black walnuts. The black walnuts add an outstanding flavor to the cereal. I'm extremely happy with the results and it goes great with vanilla soy milk. Read More

i've been making this without a recipe for years. it's delicious with chopped granny smith apples, and any other fruits in season. i actually made it this morning-before coming across this recipe- using strawberries, apples, banana...it usually stays in the fridge for a few hours to soften up and absorb the yogurt. after finding this recipe i added craisins, wheat germ, chopped pecans and sliced almonds. YUM! Read More

This is a good recipe. It makes a lot and it is nice to have on hand. I was surprised to find that I liked it better cooked. It's heavenly when it's hot and thick with sliced bananas and cinnamon on top. I did add extra raisins and next time I'll add some other dried fruits as well. Read More

This is excellent - better than any oatmeal (I like it hot - 90 secs in the microwave w/ some skim milk) and best of all it literally cost 1 to make at the local organic grocery store using the bins. I used almonds instead of walnuts BTW. Read More

This is such a yummy balanced recipe! Being natural muesli I thought it would be bland but this is yummier than any toasted muesli recipe I have ever had because of the wonderful nutty oaty flavour. The brown sugar measures to perfection to provide just a hint of sweetness and so do all of the other quantaties. I substituted wallnuts and pistachios for the nuts and dates and apricots for the sultanas and it is the best muesli I have ever had: ) Read More

This recipe is excellent! (And it saves on cereal.) My husband loves it and eats it with organic yogurt. I've added slivered almonds organic rye oats and soy oats. It also works great as hot cereal--we added dry milk and dried blueberries on our last hiking trip. Read More
