This time of year, I switch from hot, steel-cut oatmeal to meusli. What is meusli? It’s similar to granola, only not baked in oil the way granola is. Pronounced, MEW zlee, it’s a combination of oats, nuts, and dried fruit.
I love it in the morning with milk and honey. Sometimes, I’ll slice a banana for it, or add fresh raspberries or blueberries. It’s also handy as a yogurt topping.
I used to get it in the bulk food section of my grocery store. Recently, I’ve started mixing my own. It’s so simple!
3 cups oats
1 cup raw or roasted nuts (any or all: almonds, walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds)
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped dates
Optional: Flax seeds, dried apples, dried cranberries or any other dried fruit.
Store in an airtight container. It will keep for 8-12 weeks.
