Best Muesli Recipe Ever

When I was doing my TTC (Yoga Teacher’s Training Course) a few years ago, I was chosen to be in the kitchen. On top of attending the classes, everyone had to do a specific chore, which they’d call ‘Karma Yoga’ — it ranged from gardening to repair work and from housekeeping to toilet cleaning—I am ever happy I got cooking!!! Anyhow, my every day task, for 6 weeks, was to prepare the morning muesli… and I loved it! I became so good at it that my fellow student friends started calling me the ‘Muesli Goddess.’

Here’s my secret recipe!!!

1 pack (450g) of organic oats or multigrain

1 cup of raw sunflower seeds

1 cup of raw pumpkin seeds

½ cup of non-hulled sesame seeds

1 cup of raw almonds, sliced or whole

¼ cup of dried cranberries (or raisins)

¼ cup of olive oil

½ cup of maple syrup

  1. Preheat the oven at 450F
  2. In a big bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.
  3. In a little bowl, whip the oil and the maple syrup together.
  4. Incorporate the maple syrup and oil mix to the dry ingredients making sure all the grains and nuts are coated. This is easier to do using your hands.
  5. Spread the muesli on a cookie pan and cook in the over for 5 to 7 minutes, then with a spatula, turn the mixture around and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes.

Variation: When the muesli has cooled off, you can add ½ cup of 70% black chocolate chips (Camino).

It will keep for a month, stored in a plastic container or preferably in a glass jar.
