swiss style muesli

To help out my food budget, I've been trying to stick to similar breakfasts everyday.  I alternate between eggs or muesli with goats milk yogurt.

What the heck is muesli you ask?  In Switzerland, muesli is a popular breakfast item, or even desert.  A physician came up with the meal back in the day- to help nourish his sick patients.  It is a mixture of nuts, fruit, and dry rolled oats.  Sounds kind of weird, huh?

It is actually quite tasty.  You typically add milk or yogurt to it, and of course some honey to sweeten it up a bit.  Try it and see what you think!

Swiss Style Muesli (Gluten Free)

 2 cups of Gluten Free Rolled Oats (Or just regular rolled oats if you would like)
1 cup of mixed nuts (unsalted)- I bought mine at a local food store from the bin
1/2 cup raisins 
1 pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon

*I grabbed a large mason jar and shook all the ingredients together and stored in my fridge.  Good for two weeks!

How to Serve:

Pour about 1/2 a cup of the muesli into a bowl.  Mix with 3 table spoons of hot water.  You may also leave it dry if you would like.  

Mix it all together with a bit of honey (1 tbls is great). 

Pour about a 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt or plain goats milk yogurt on top.  

Add some fresh blueberries, banana, or strawberries if you would like.

And... eat up!  Watch how great you feel after!
