Swiss Muesli

Muesli Blue Bowl

This is not your average muesli recipe, eaten hot, like porridge, or cold swimming in milk. It is instead, fresh with citrus, and crunchy grated apple, tart and creamy with the yogurt, and a lovely sweetness compliments of a healthy drizzle of local honey.

Throw in some fresh picked berries and you have just made a power packed breakfast, that will  successfully get you and your family through your busy morning to lunch. I make a big batch on the weekend, that will last us for about a week.

  • For a large batch
  • 6 cups rolled oats

  • 12 dried apricots diced
  • 1/4 cup yellow raisins
  • 1/4 cup Thompson raisins

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 crisp apple(we use Fuji) grated

  • local honey
  1. Every morning, a half hour before we want to eat, we do the following. Juice 1 1/2 oranges into bowl, and add grated 1/2 an apple, peel on. (if I do not have time to grate an apple we just add unsweetened shredded coconut instead). Add 2 cups muesli mix to the orange apple mixture, and stir well. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for a half hour. Fast forward half hour. Scoop into bowl 3/4 cup muesli mix. Add 2 heaping Tspn organic plain yogurt. Drizzle 1 heaping Tspn honey all over yogurt and muesli. Feel free to add to your bowl some fresh picked berries of your choice. Makes enough to fit into a 2 quart glass mason jar.
