Almost Muesli

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011 by Rachel

This week we made our first batch of muesli…well, almost muesli. After seeing this video over at Summer Tomato, Derrick and I were both excited about muesli as an alternative to cereal or granola for breakfast.


Unfortunately, since we live in Milledgeville, we were unable to find a 5 grain cereal as recommended in the video. We knew that rolled oats would work, but we wanted the benefits of multiple grains. We found this Kashi 7 Grain Puffs cereal, which tastes like a healthier Rice Krispies. The con of the Puffs would be that we do not have the option of eating this food cold or hot, as with traditional muesli.


We are on our third day of muesli-eatin’. I have had bowls with both almond milk and Smart Balance Milk. The almond milk brings a sweeter flavor to the cereal and complements the nuts.


Almost Muesli


Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs
Cashew Halves and Pieces
Almonds (Low Sodium)
Peanuts (Unsalted, Dry Roasted)
Sunflower Kernels
Golden Raisins
Dried Cherries


Mix ingredients together in a big bowl. You’ll know when you’ve got the proportions right. Puffs should be the most used ingredient, and the dried fruit should be the least used. Store in a container to preserve freshness.
