Apparently my expertise in raw food has been focused on breakfast-type foods: granola, blueberry crackers, and today you get MUESLI!!!
Again, completely delicious. This one doesn't need a dehydrator, and gives you all the benefits of raw, living food. Eli and Silas eat it up every morning. Never again will I buy boxed cereal, for this fills the craving.
It's this easy:
4 cups Hulled Oats, soaked overnight (you could even sprout them for even more nutrition) and rolled
1 cup raisins
1 cup currents
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup mullberries
1/2 cup goldenberries
1. Place 4 cups of hulled oats in filtered water overnight. Rinse. Run through a hand grain mill (available for under $50, and provides fresh oatmeal any time! We have a Norpro Grain Grinder.)
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
3. Top with almond milk (or other nut milk) and maple syrup to taste and ENJOY!
This muesli freezes very well, not clumping together or anything, so you can just open the bag you have it frozen in and scoop out enough for your breakfast each morning. And don't be constrained by what I put in it, just put in whatever dried fruit or other goodies you have. Just raisins would be fine. If you like apricots, throw those in. Really, as Janice would say, be your own raw food alchemist!
