Muesli Recipe: How to make oatmeal taste amazing

Breakfast as most know it is a sorry affair. Most of the time, you spend your breakfast time snoozing in bed, hoping to make up for skipping last night's sleep routine.

On days you do eat breakfast, it's sugary cereal or the whole-wheat, whole-grain, high-fibre, cholesterol-reducing, slightly less sugary one. Dump that in a bowl of milk and use a giant spoon to pedal ever-closer to diabetes island.

It doesn't have to be this way, you know? You can have your carby breakfast in minutes while staying full, healthy and lean for the rest of the day. How now, you say?

Behold swole Muesli, and kiss your soggy, sad oats goodbye. Muesli was developed by a Swiss doctor, so you know it must be good for you. At it's heart it's just oatmeal, but it's genius is all the stuff you add to it that make it both a delicious and nutritious meal.

These recipes work like templates, endlessly variable and open to whatever fruits, nuts, flavours, etc. your whims require. It’s a great way to knock out a healthy breakfast and kill your cravings in the same go!

Traditional Style

  • 20g oat bran
  • 20g plain oats (either quick or old-fashioned, depending on your texture preferences)
  • 50g green apple, grated (flexible to the texture you prefer)
  • ~2 tsp lemon juice (optional)
  • 15g Slivered almonds
  • 5g Cream (optional)
  • Cinnamon
  • 2% plain greek yogurt, to serve

Grate the apple and mix with remaining ingredients. Serve with yogurt and additional cinnamon, to taste. No need to microwave or anything, though prepping ahead and let it soak for an hour is nice.

Crunchy Style

This one is my favorite. It requires a bit more cooking but the end result is crunchy and delicious.

  • 20g oat bran
  • 20g plain oats (either quick or old-fashioned, depending on your texture preferences)
  • 50g green apple, grated
  • 15g Slivered almonds (or any nuts or seeds)
  • 3-5g coconut oil
  • Cinnamon
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract, water, or mix
  1. Mix all ingredients except the coconut oil.
  2. Heat coconut oil in skillet.
  3. When hot, throw in the oat mix for ~half a minute to sauté.
  4. As it's sautéing: sprinkle very lightly with water or vanilla extract just enough to get it to clump up a bit.
  5. As it begins to crisp, remove from heat and serve topped with Greek yogurt.

Feel free to add fruit, cinnamon or other toppings to the yogurt that you'd like.

Some variations I recommend:

  • Coconut and almond
  • Sesame seeds & cherries (use fresh, dried or frozen and save some for topping)
  • Blackberries & pumpkin seeds
  • Apples & sunflower seeds

How did yours turn out?
