How to Make This Pumpkin Spice Homemade Muesli
Simple mix 3 cups of rolled oats with ½ cup each of dried cranberries and shredded coconut, ⅓ cup of pumpkin seeds, ⅓ cup of sunflower seeds, ¼ cup of ground flax, and 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice.
To serve, add ½ cup of the muesli to a bowl, and top with milk of choice. You can also add in Greek yogurt, kefir, chopped apples, or peanut butter. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes to soak up the milk, and soften. It can also be used to top a bowl of yogurt, or use as you would granola.
- Store your homemade muesli in a glass jar with a lid to keep it fresh, and make pouring easy. Any ol' jar will work. Mine is usually an old pasta sauce or pickle jar.
- Use your favorite nuts, seeds, and dried fruits. Some options include raisins, dried cherries, chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds.
- My favorite way to enjoy it is mixed with half almond milk, half Greek yogurt, and topped with chopped apple, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
What kind of oats do I use?
The traditional rolled oats are what I used, since they are a little more hearty than instant or quick oats. Use certified gluten-free oats if needed.
How do I serve it?
You can eat it like cereal, simply topping a bowl with milk. Letting it sit for a few minutes gives the oats time to soften. You can also heat it up with milk if you prefer a warm breakfast, or mix with yogurt or kefir. Top it with chopped apple, or extra cinnamon per my recommendation. 🙂
What if I don't have ground flax?
You can simply leave it out, or add a couple tablespoons of chia seeds instead. You can swap out any of the nuts/seeds/fruit for what you prefer, or have on hand. The ones I added just seems more "fall-like" to me.
Money-Saving Tips for this Homemade Muesli:
Buy in bulk. Purchase items like oats, nuts, and seeds in bulk to get more for your money.
Use store brands. Utilize store brands for dried fruits, spices, and oats for a more affordable option, that doesn't sacrifice flavor or quality.
