i've been on a muesli kick all summer and it only recently occurred to me that i could likely stop paying $10 per bag and make my own. the cold mushiness of it all has always turned me off, but the muesli at peels completely changed my mind. to be honest, i'm certain that the labne yogurt at peels has everything to do with it. but nonetheless, muesli at home is incredibly easy.
the entire essence of muesli is it's mushiness and the best way to attain mushy perfection is by adding yogurt or milk and letting it sit overnight. that being said, i don't always remember to do so and simply sprinkle muesli over my yogurt just as i would granola.
no cooking. dump it in a bowl.
homemade strawberry muesli
2 cups old fashioned oats
generous 1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins
generous 1/2 cup sliced blanched almonds
3/4 cup freeze dried strawberries (trader joe's are so good)
add all ingredients in a bowl and give it a stir. done!
to prepare the night before-- add just enough milk to cover the muesli, or layer with yogurt like a parfait. place in the fridge and let sit overnight.
drizzle with honey or maple syrup right before serving.
ps: this muesli recipe looks yummy too.
