HomeMade Swiss Muesli - A Swiss Favorite!

Print  Friendly and PDF
What is Muesli? As per the Wiki, Muesli, pronounced Mew-zz-li was developed around 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Benner for patients in his hospital. It is available in the supermarket cereal aisle but it can also be made fresh. Homemade Muesli is so easy to make and the beauty of it is that the ingredients can be altered as per personal preference.Once you get a hang of making this at home, you ain't ever going shopping for the packaged one. So here goes the recipe that may appeal to most(for one serving).

  • Uncooked quick rolled Oats - 1/4 cup
  • Corn Flakes/Bran Flakes - 1/4 cup
  • Wheat Germ - 1 tbsp
  • Wheat Bran - 1 tbsp
  • Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
  • Choice of nuts(Cashew, Almond, Walnuts) - a handful
  • Choice of dry fruits(Craisins, Raisins, Apricots, Figs) - a handful, chopped
  • Apple Chunks - a handful
  • Olive oil - 1 tbsp
  • Honey - 1 tbsp
  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Mix the Olive oil and Honey in a bowl and slightly warm it. 
  • In a oven proof dish mix all the other ingredients and pour the warmed oil-honey mixture.
  • Give it a brisk stir and pop into the oven for 30 minutes stirring now and then.
  • Remove from the oven and cool for an hour.
  • Enjoy with warm milk.Sliced banana may be added on top.
Makes 1 Serving.
