Apple-Berry Muesli

One of the best times of the year is berry season (strawberry, blackberry, raspberry blueberry….).  Nothing beats the taste of a fresh picked berry.  It seems to go by so fast, so I try to consume as many as possible before the season comes to an end.  This year I’ve been combining my love of berries with my new breakfast obsession: Muesli!

This recipe comes from the Oh She Glows recipe book, and I have made very few changes.  I love it because it’s quick and easy to prepare and requires minimal ingredients, which can be switched up depending on what you have on hand.  You can also make it the night before as a grab and go breakfast or snack.

Rolled oats are called for, but you can also use quick oats.  However, you will lose some of the texture using quick oats, and they have a slightly higher glycemic index, so rolled is preferred.

Ingredients:

Serves 2-4

  • 1 apple peeled and cubed
  • 1 apple peeled and grated
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup yogurt of choice
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, hemp hearts or crushed nuts
  • 1-2 tbsp dried cranberries and/or raisins
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon or to taste
  • Your favourite fresh berries, sliced
  • Other toppings as desired

Directions:

Mix all ingredients (except for the berries) together and put in the fridge overnight (or for at least 2 hours).  Top with berries, and any other desired toppings, and serve.
