Recipe: Museli

Our standard breakfast around here is a bowl of plain yogurt (and full-fat is the only real yogurt in existence, don't even talk to me about low-fat or *shudder* fat-free) with a scoop of granola. If I'm feeling extra extravagant I'll throw some fresh or frozen berries on the top and drizzle some honey over all of it.

The only problem with this scenario is that store-bought granola is packed full of sugar. Like, a lot of sugar. An option for us might be making our own granola, which we've done before and we enjoy. The problem with that is the time required (a rather long baking time and heavy monitoring required with stirring throughout). Also, the sugar in that is still pretty high. 

Enter, our newest (and most delicious) solution. 

The recipe is simple and easily customizeable. I adapted mine from In Praise of Leftovers

It's a really beautiful mixture of things, so I've decided to show you the recipe visually. Here's how to make our homemade museli. 

It's super easy and super delicious.

Enjoy it with some yogurt or some milk. You can even cook it briefly on the stove. Since the only sugar in it is from the dried fruit, feel free to add your desired amount of sweetener.

I enjoy mine with a swirl of honey over the top and a few frozen raspberries we still have left over from the summer.

Hope y'all enjoy it as much as we do!

Keep it real,


  1. Will definitely be trying this!
