Easy Homemade Muesli

Spice up your breakfast

Sick of boring cereal and blah muesli from the supermarket? Well, how about making your own…


This is the easiest recipe you can make, it’s just a matter of throwing a few things from the cupboard.


  • 2 cups of oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup sultanas
  • 1/4 cup apricots
  • 1/4 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 3 tbsp shredded coconut

Combine ingredients, slicing apricots into smaller pieces. Serve with milk, plain yoghurt and fresh blueberries, raspberries,  strawberries.


If you’re missing any of the ingredients you can just swap it for whatever you have handy in your cupboard. Add 1-2 tbsp of wheatgerm to give it an added hit of fiber.

Convert it into bircher by adding 1/2 cup of orange/apple juice, 3/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup of shredded coconut and leaving in the fridge overnight.

Try adding: walnuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, dried apples, goji berries or blueberries

Of coarse, I can’t take all the credit for this, the latest issue of healthyfoodguide.co.nz was a great source of inspiration!
