Banana Muesli Recipe

This banana muesli is the perfect, nutritious, and delicious start to your morning!

A while back, I started something called The Oatmeal Project. The goal of this project is to come up with 365 different ways to top your oatmeal.

Clean Eating Banana Muesli Recipe

I was so focused on cooked oats that I just plain forgot about Muesli. Uncooked oats make a fantastically filling and tasty breakfast.

When I lived in Germany, this dish was served nearly every morning as the first course of the breakfast meal. It was served in a small bowl and was really more to “wet your whistle” than to fill you up. But I looked forward to that bowl of cool Muesli with warm milk every morning with eager anticipation.

Muesli is quick and easy to make and will often keep you full for much longer than regular oatmeal. At least, that’s been the case for me.

So here is one more addition to The Oatmeal Project.

    Wow, I never realized that you could eat them raw like that. Great idea for those mornings when I’m rushed or just don’t feel like making oatmeal. This could also be a great on-the-go meal for me or my fiance. Thanks, Tiffany. I’m Sharon K from FB who recently joined your FB page.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sharon – Thanks for stopping by! I have to agree, this is a GREAT on-the-go cereal. Hope you enjoy it!

    Wow! Having this for breakfast right now and it’s fantastic! I was afraid I’d need to add some honey or agave, but it’s great without the addition. Thanks again for a wonderful recipe.

    Meghan – Many health food stores carry them or you can order them from

  8. Can you use steel cut oats in this?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Amy – I don’t recommend it.

  9. graciouspantry says:

    Awww, thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed it!

  10. graciouspantry says:

    Most health food stores have them. But if you can’t find them, try using ground flax seeds instead. Or, you can use sunflower seeds too. Really, you can add anything you like to this. Muesli is VERY versatile.

  11. Evelyn McDaniel says:

    Oh my! I gave this recipe a try today and it is fabulous. I haven’t been able to find chai seeds, but it was great without them I can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow!

  12. Could you add pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds too? Also what is the benefit of almond milk over cow? Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ashleigh – The milk is totally a personal choice, and yes, you can add whatever you like to this. Seeds are most traditional.:)

  13. Great. Got the ingredients today ready for brekky tomorrow. Can’t wait!

  14. This has become my new favorite meal! It’s so good that I usually eat it for a dessert ๐Ÿ™‚ The chia seeds are a little expensive for a college student like myself so I just sprinkle a small handful of ezekiel cereal on top to get a little extra crunch. Love your site!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rachel – Awesome! You can also grind up some flax seed for the Omega fats.

  15. I was going to make this but I don’t have almonds…what other nut do you recommend?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Shaley – Any nut you enjoy will work fine. ๐Ÿ™‚
