This simple breakfast muesli is the perfect blend of oats, dried fruit, nuts and seeds for the ultimate breakfast in a jar to make overnight oats, cereal, or as a yogurt parfait topper! Made in 10 min with 7 ingredients packed with protein, fibre and omega 3’s to keep you going all morning long 😉
If you’ve never heard of muesli before don’t worry you’re probably not alone. I first discovered it while living abroad in Australia as its a very popular breakfast option there. They often serve it with fresh fruit, milk and yogurt and its delicious. Just picture granola but not clustered and can be made with either toasted or untoasted oats.
If you peek inside the HealthNut HQ aka my kitchen you’ll always see a few large mason jars on my counter of ingredients I grab for most often and this breakfast muesli blend always make the cut! I love having it on hand for quick on the go breakfasts and since I make it all myself I know the ingredients are good quality and there’s no unnecessary added sugar or sodium compared to most packaged cereals and granolas.
No matter how busy my mornings are I never skip out on breakfast because without my brain food first thing in the day there’s no way I’ll be able to sustain my energy throughout the day and get everything done on my to do list.
So for all of you “I’m too busy to eat” peeps this breakfast muesli is the answer to your morning food problems. You can either turn it into my Simple Bircher Muesli recipe or add it to some plain yogurt with fresh fruit like berries, peaches or apples for a quick last minute option.
