Muesli

Museli-2

Breakfast is a must; A must that scares me… I get breakfast anxiety, trust me I can eat stew at breakfast but the idea of starting my day healthy, fresh and fast and yes delicious is what gets my nerves acting crazy. There are days I spend quite some time preparing my French toast, such days are pure bliss and my gigantically growing thighs are least of my concern. But the truth is such days are not a regular feature and in the morning when I cannot get in most of my favorite dresses something healthy is what I need. Tasty, Healthy and fast; this muesli is a perfect way to start your day.

Muesli, a popular breakfast dish is a blend of raw rolled oats along with seeds, nuts, other grains, fresh or dried fruits mixed with milk, or yogurt etc. Honestly I didn’t grew up eating muesli in fact on rare occasion if it was served I hated the idea of it. But in college I developed a taste for it and rest is history.

The fun part of maxing your own muesli mix is you get to decide what you want in it and in what ratio. Here in this recipe I have added roasted coconut but as I say you are free to play around and make your own mix. No rocket science here!

So go ahead and mix a batch for yourself. Store it in refrigerator for lasting freshness, especially if you are adding coconut and nuts. This will become your go to meal/snack… I can assure you!

    I discovered muesli in college, too. I think it’s one of the most beautiful foods, and the homemade version is waaay better than the boxed stuff I ate in college. Next to leftover chili, muesli is my favorite breakfast ;)
