Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm! Thank you for this.


Muesli is my favourite breakfast too, but I throw it all in the bowl just before I eat it, rather than mixing it up ahead of time. Old-fashioned rolled oats, raw walnuts, ground flaxseeds, raisins, soymilk, a sliced banana, and sometimes other things if I have them to hand. Only takes a few minutes.

Keeps you full for hours and hits all the nutrition high spots.


That looks delicious! I add grated apple, chia seeds and cinnamon to my oats.


Very healthy breakfast. I would love it. I'm not into cooking, I keep things extremely simple. Denny and I are both "grazers". We seldom sit down for a "meal" unless we're at some restaurant or family gathering. We just pop some kind of food into our mouths every couple hours or whenever we get hungry. My workday breakfast is whole oats cooked for 3 minutes in water and a little bit of Splenda for sweetening and raisins or banana mixed in. I prepare and eat this in the office so as not to disturb my other half who is at home still sleeping. On weekends, breakfast is usually 3 fried eggs and a microwave baked potato. LOL Oh, and there's always coffee with sweetened creamer - at least a couple of large mugs every morning. Less time cooking means more time knitting, crocheting, and doing other fun things, right? I'm trying to eliminate all foods containing refined sugar and white flour because of some serious hip inflammation/pain I started having this year. I'm amazed at the improvement/change that's happened already. Good food really is the best medicine!


I make overnight oatmeal in a glass jar and warm it in the micro in the morning. 1/2 cup rolled oats, 2 tea chia seeds, 1/2 tea cinnamon, little honey, dried cranberries or dried cherries, chopped pecans and 1 c of cocoanut or almond milk (not canned). Put into a bowl in the morning and microwave 1.30 minutes. Delicious!

Thanks for sharing, I will definitely try this.

I am a recent convert to overnight oats. Layer 40g of oats with fruit such as strawberries, Rhaspberries blueberries. (Frozen work well) top with low fat plain yogurt and leave overnight. Too up with more fresh fruit if required.

I've made granola through the years but have never tried muesli. Thanks for sharing Lucy I will give it a try. My breakfast would be a scaled down version I guess for I have nuts and fruit, whatever is on hand most days. Now on the weekend the hubby wants (a Southern US version of) the full Irish.lol


My muesli recipe looks a lot like yours though maybe fewer nuts but with a packet of crunchy dried coconut strips added. Mine is usually soaked overnight in orange juice - try it, a nice change from milk

This is a great blog. I make homemade granola mainly for husband but this looks great too. I like that it does not contain a lot of added sugar! Thank you Lucy!


I keep both cut oats for hot porridge and rolled oats for museli and/or granola. Yum! Deborah from the U.S.


Hi Lucy, I have a number of food no-no's as I cannot eat wheat, gluten, lactose, apples, pears etc however have found a gluten free oat blend made by Nutri bix and add nuts, raisins etc to this and have either plain lactofree or soya yoghurt or lactofree milk and this is absolutely yummy.


definitely going to try this Lucy it looks yummy :)


I'm a big fan of marmalade on brown or whole grain toast (no butter though) but I do indulge in a bacon sarnie sometimes (and that has to be on white bread with ketchup). And as a special treat I do mushrooms in a creamy sauce with paprika and nutmeg - my son calls these "magic mushrooms"! Your muesli looks delicious - much nicer than the branded / ready-mixed versions. No brazil nuts allowed in our house though as my daughter is seriously allergic to them.


Hi Lucy I vary most days as a Coeliac ( allergic to gluten in wheat barly and rye ) I am delighted that they now have gluten free oats (milled without flour ) and I enjoy Mueslie too ! Adding fruit and for variety gluten free cornflakes and gluten free coco pops with banana adding yoghurt lots of flavours mango rhubarb etc etc lots love Jenny from Cornwall
