Muesli is such a healthy breakfast! Full of nutrients, low in sugar, keeps you satiated, and it's super easy to make! It`s my favorite breakfast atm! You can have it with your preferred dairy-free milk or yogurt, or top your smoothie bowls. This is a family sized batch (and if I'm sprouting I like to do more as it takes a little longer) but feel free to half it. Here is what I used, you can swap out any ingredients for what you have on hand!
Nuts and Seeds:
• 1/2 C Raw Hazelnuts
• 1/2 C Raw Almonds
• 1/2 C Raw Sunflower Seeds
• 1/2 C Raw Pumpkin Seeds
• 1/2 C Unsweetened Coconut Ribbons (or shredded)
• 1/4 C Sesame Seeds
• 1/4 C Hemp Hearts
• 1/4 C Chia Seeds
• 1/2 C Dried White Mulberries
• 1/2 C Dried Chopped Apple
• 1/2 C Chopped Pitted Dates
• 1/2 C Dried Berries (Blueberries and Raspberries)
• 3 C Rolled Old Fashioned Oats
• 1/2 C Oat Flour (if you have a high powered blender you can blend 1/2 C rolled oats)
• 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
Raw nuts and seeds contain phytic acid which can inhibit nutrient absorbtion. They also have high amounts of enzymes inhibitors making them hard to digest. Soaking nuts can neutralize the enzymes allowing for proper digestion.
If you don't want to do the first three steps below you can mix all of your muesli ingredients together and add a portion of it to a jar or airtight container with some almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer), cover and let soak overnight. Then you just wake up to a delicious brekkie that is easy on your tummy and packed with goodness!
• Add hazelnuts, almonds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds to a jar or bowl and cover with water until the water is approx an inch above nuts (as they will soak in some of the water)
• Let soak overnight. Drain and rinse.
• Add to dehydrator on a mesh sheet, spread evenly so they are not overlapping and dehydrate for a few hours (or until dry) at 115F.
• Add all ingredients to a med sized mixing bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed.
• Store in the fridge in an airtight jar or container. Enjoy!
