10 minute muesli is made with natural oats, dried fruit, nuts and is made perfect by a splash of cold milk!
Say hello to the adult version of cereal that is about to replace any and all boxed varieties in your life. It’s a bold claim, but that’s how strongly I believe in this recipe. this homemade muesli is easy, quick, packed with nutrients, and so crazy satisfying that you’ll kick yourself for not making it sooner.
Did I mention it takes a mere 10 minutes to pull together?! No waiting around for a lazy weekend morning to make this baby!
How to make easy homemade muesli
Okay, let’s discuss. Grab some oats — my favorite are the pre-portioned containers from Modern Oats, which come in something like a dozen different flavors. I’ve tried most of them and seriously they are the best.
Here’s what makes Modern Oats perfect for this recipe: they’re not just oats. The Vermont Maple, which I used here, also contains chia, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds in addition to warm spices like cinnamon and cardamom. And yeah, sure, I keep all those things in my pantry, but when you’re busy (like literally every single one of us!) simple is preferable. They’ve got us covered. And remember, we’re making easy homemade muesli. This is easy!
How long does it take to make this homemade muesli recipe?
10 minutes. Seriously, that’s it.
In the amount of time it takes for the ingredients to toast (trust me, don’t skip this step, it gives everything a warm, nutty flavor and makes your house smell amazing), pour yourself a cup of coffee. Watch the news. Sip a mimosa. Just don’t go too far because 10 minutes goes by quickly!
What do you add to muesli?
To keep things simple, I added a few of my current favorite snack foods — pistachios, dried blueberries, and freeze dried raspberries. But you can switch out or substitute your favorite pantry staples. Any and all dried fruits, nuts, or even chocolate are welcome here!
How do I serve homemade muesli?
Okay, you could serve this over thick, creamy Greek yogurt, but I’m telling you there is something about eating this like cereal that is so ridiculously satisfying.
I was kind enough to let my kids have a bite (but just one) and then promptly rejected their advances for more. It’s mine, hands off, don’t touch. And honestly I feel I’m doing them a favor by teaching them rejection early on. Because you know what? You can’t always get what you want.
Unless you’re in the market for the perfect 10 minute muesli in which case dreams DO come true!
