Apple Muesli Recipe

This apple muesli recipe is a recipe I learned to make in Germany. They really know how to start their morning in a delicious way in that country!

When I lived in Germany, Muesli was a daily ritual. It was how we started our breakfast, and the tradition was seldom sidestepped.

An overhead view looking down into a bowl filled with this apple muesli recipe.

It was a small bowl, probably half the size of this recipe, and was meant more as a way to “wet the appetite” than to actually fill your tummy.

Of course, then the REAL breakfast would follow. A breakfast of bread, rolls, and cheeses of all types. I loved it! Who wouldn’t? Cheese is awesome stuff, and I do truly miss it. BUT…

The great thing is that I don’t have to completely give up the meals that stir my memories. This muesli takes me back to that time every time I eat it. It slows me down and makes me forget that I have a million things to do that day (which can be a good or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it).

Funny how a smell or a flavor can whisk you away on a breeze and a memory, isn’t it?

    this is how I make my oatmeal most mornings- I didn’t know it actually had a name!! I use old fashioned rolled oats,cause I really like the texture. I like raisins in mine with cinnamon and a little agave or honey and I like to add nuts when I have em in the house, and a spoonful of ground flax ( I don’t use milk cause it doesn’t like me in the mornings lol)

      Trudefaith – Ya, I know what you mean about the milk. It doesn’t like me at all anymore which makes me really sad because I LOVE milk. Boo hoo. I like your version here. I may have to try that myself. Thanks!

    I am eating some right now and it’s delicious! I love the taste and the mix of different textures, AND i love how much fiber and protein it has! Thanks for putting this recipe together. I had a hankering for coconut, so added some organic unsweetened coconut shreds to the mix. Will make this often, thanks again!
