This simple recipe evolved from experimentation over the years.
I started adding cinnamon when I learned that a small amount a
day is good for regulating cholesterol and blood sugar.
This recipe makes about 23 half-cup servings.
- 4 cups raw oatmeal (regular, not quick)
- 4 cups raw rye flakes (available at our coop or Wild Oats;
they look a lot like oatmeal)
- 2 cups oat bran (optional, if leave out, increase oats and rye
above to 5 cups each instead of 4)
- 1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts (this comes to a little over 1 T. per serving)
- 2 T. cinnamon (this comes to about 1/4 tsp per serving)
- Put all the above in a large bowl and stir well.
- Place in air-tight jars or plastic bags and store in dark cool place
- Eat with milk or yoghurt or soymilk or rice milk or nut milk
(such as almond milk).
Some people like to soak the muesli in the milk or yoghurt for a while
before eating. I don't usually do that but it's a good thing to do
if you have time.
(Wallaby low-fat yoghurt is amazing.)
- Be sure to add fruit. I like fresh or thawed frozen blueberries or
fresh grated or chopped apple or sliced banana.
- Use other kinds of nuts.
- Use other kinds of grains such as wheat flakes.
- Add dried fruit such as raisins or chopped dried apple.
- Use more walnuts if you aren't worried about the calories. Yum.
