Powerhouse Muesli

Muesli is a breakfast cereal made here from uncooked grains. It is usually mixed with fresh or dried fruit and nuts. This is a favorite go to breakfast because my pantry usually has all the ingredients and it can be made ahead of time. Talk about convenient! Try eating muesli with fresh diced banana, a drizzle of maple syrup and lots of cold milk. Delicious. A great alternative to commercial cold cereal. Recipe is below.
