I love granola, oatmeal and oats in the morning, especially in cool weather or rainy weather or, like now, in the middle of winter! But when it starts to warm up outside, it's time for a cool, light variation of the warm and heavy oats -- muesli! I especially love it stirred into yoghurt with some a few berries or banana slices on top and a good drizzle of maple syrup.
5 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup oat bran
1 cup currants or raisins
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in an air-tight container for up to 2 months.
Serve mixed into hot milk or hot water for a warm meal, or cold with milk or yoghurt. This is an unsweetened mix which is great for Kaphas but Vatas would benefit from a drizzle of honey added while Pittas would do well with a drizzle of maple syrup. Enjoy!
Add any combination, keeping the total in recipe to 1 1/2 cups:
chopped prunes * dried cranberries * slivered almonds * hazelnuts * hemp seeds * pumpkin seeds * chopped apricots * chopped dates
