Yummy Breakfast Idea!

Recently I came across a raw muesli recipe and decided to give it a try. This is such a simple and flexible breakfast option, and best of all - the kids LOVED it! There are no exact measurements in this recipe - use as much or as little of each ingredient as you like. These are all just options, so play with the recipe based on what works for your family. I purchased all my ingredients at the Bulk Barn, which allows you buy just what you need. Here are some options for your muesli:
-Spelt flakes
-raw cashews
-raw almonds
-raw sunflower seeds
-raw pumpkin seeds
-dried apricots
-dried goji berries
-coconut flakes
-dried cranberries
If you don't like big pieces, briefly chop the fruit/nuts in a food processor. Place all ingredients in a large glass jar or tupperware and keep in a dry and cool environment. To serve, use some of the your muesli mixture and add seasonal fresh fruit (I like peaches, blueberries and raspberries). Add almond milk or soy milk. This was such a hit for both my kids, and what a wonderful way to start the day! This is a great nutritious and naturopathic snack for kids going off to school!
