Homemade Muesli Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Making your own cereal for breakfast is so very easy and so much healthier than most store-bought options. (Have you noticed how much sugar is in your average cold cereal?!) It’s my guess that homemade muesli, granola, etc. ends up being cheaper, too! While you may invest a bit at first, the ingredients last quite a while, and you can usually make several batches of cereal over a few months’ time. If you haven’t attempted homemade muesli yet, why not give it a try?

Most people put walnuts and raisins in their muesli. But if you don’t like either of those, you can substitute them with your favorite nuts or dried fruit. In the picture above I used dried cranberries, plums, cherries, and blueberries for my homemade muesli.

Changing out the nuts and fruit offers variety and a bit of change, especially if you keep muesli and granola handy on a regular basis. For even more variety I added coconut to this recipe. But you can omit it, it’s optional.

You can serve this cereal hot or cold. While I like my homemade Pumpkin Flax Seed Granola cold, I prefer muesli hot.  But, I will give you directions for both.

Hot or Cold Muesli?

Add equal parts hot water, milk, or soy milk – your choice – and your homemade muesli. Bring it to a boil and then let it rest on simmer for 3 or 4 minutes. Stir once or twice as needed until all liquid is absorbed. You can also cook it in the microwave for 3-5 minutes. Then simply add what you like and serve.

I like to sweeten mine with almond milk. But you can add honey or raw sugar as you prefer.

If you like to eat it cold, that’s even easier.  Add equal parts milk, almond milk, or soy milk – your choice – and muesli. Soak for 5-10 min. and serve.
