Here is my favorite version of muesli using not only oats but other ‘superfoods’ like chia seeds and buckwheat grouts making this a nutritional powerhouse meal.
Step by Step Directions
In small/medium bowl combine oats, buckwheat groats, chia seeds, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, and half of the raisins. Mix well, cover and refrigerate overnight, or eat in one to two hours after it has set. Serve cold, or at room temp, topped with diced figs, apples, raisins and nuts/seeds and a sprinkle of cinnamon…add a little more milk if desired. I like to mix most of the apples in first and then top with the remaining ingredients.
Stores up to a couple days in airtight container in the refrigerator. Try drinking a glass of lemon water with this, very refreshing!
You may also like to try 100% fruit juice in place of the milk or use any fruits you like.
*For 100% raw look for raw oats that have not undergone the steam process. These you will want to soak for eight hours plus.
You can also make it to go in the morning. Combine all the ingredients in a mason jar, or other to go container, give it a good stir and take it with you. The non-dairy milk is perfectly fine without refrigeration until ready to eat. At least if it’s eaten within the day it should be fine, unlike dairy products that need refrigeration (another reason non-dairy milk is so great).
If you want to use more whole grains try this recipe below. It will fill you up for those extra long periods in between meals or can be munched on for a few hours…
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup buckwheat groats
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 – 1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
any fruit and nut/seeds of choice
