This easy muesli recipe is such a delicious and adaptable breakfast that you will wonder why you ever bought muesli!

As a child, I used to always eat muesli for breakfast, it was one of my favourite breakfasts. I was never very keen on sugary cereals, and a sucker for anything containing nuts!
However I then went on a muesli break.
It is often so expensive to buy, and never contains exactly the add ins I want – either too much fruit making it far too sweet, or not enough seeds or nuts.
When you make your own, however, you get to decide exactly what you want.This healthy muesli recipe contains no added sugar – it really doesn’t need any as the dried fruit adds all the sweetness you need. The nuts and seeds add extra protein and nutrients, and toasting the oats not only adds a lovely flavour and makes them slightly chewy, but also stops them from turning thick and heavy when mixed with milk.

2 ½ year old Mini Jones loves this muesli too! I have to admit I was very surprised at this, but so happy non the less! I make a batch without the nuts, toasting them on a seperate tray then storing them in a another jar. Come breakfast time I pour the muesli into our bowls and sprinkle a few nuts over mine and Mr Jones’s, leaving Mini Jones’s nut free, but still including all the seeds.

Serve this easy muesli with your favourite non dairy milk for a delicious and healthy plant based breakfast that will stave off those mid morning cravings.

Make it Your Muesli:

Nut Free: Leave out the nuts and add some more seeds if you wish.
Different Nuts: Replace almonds and walnuts with cashews, hazelnuts or some coconut flakes.
Fruit free: Replace the fruit with extra nuts and seeds.
Gluten Free: Make sure your oats are gluten free. Omit the barley flakes, sub in the same amount of gluten free oats.

  1. I love homemade musesli as you can control the ratios – I’m not a big fan of dried fruit so I like to make sure there are lots of nuts and seeds, so I like that your recipe is flexible 🙂

    1. Thankyou Marcellina! I bought them from a bulk health food store. They just add a little more texture to dishes such as this muesli.
