Homemade maple muesli is full of oats, nuts, and fruits infused with maple syrup. Perfect for a quick breakfast for when you are rushing out the door!
Last week I shared my experience at the Pinch of Yum Workshop. During the workshop, the POY staff made us breakfast every day. The second day they served Muesli so that we could practice our photography. Of course that led to me coming home making a Homemade Maple Muesli.
So I served up a bowl of it and took my pictures then sat down to eat it. And now I have another favorite breakfast.
I never had Muesli growing up. Usually for breakfast we had eggs, breakfast tacos, menudo or cereal. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have those things or overnight oats but I like to have things on hand I can grab and go for breakfast. Usually I am running out the door so I need to have something that is ready to pull out of the fridge/freezer or already in my purse. Ain’t nobody got time for anything else!
When I got back from my trip to Minneapolis, I knew I had to make my own Muesli so I could have a quick and tasty breakfast ready to go. So off I went to Sprouts to get everything in bulk and let me tell you, a little makes a lot. After I made a couple of batches, I took some for the gals at work, my parents and I still have a jar at home. It’s been a hit with everyone. I love that you can put a variety of ingredients to mix it up. Put in your favorite nuts, seeds, or fruit. Top it with fresh fruit. I always have bananas on hand so that’s what I use most of the time. But go wild with your fresh fruit.
