meusli 5 29 09This 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.
