Chia Seed Muesli

If you’re not familiar with the term “muesli”, it’s basically a breakfast cereal comprised of rolled oats, dried fruit, nuts, and seeds that hails from Switzerland. You can combine it with milk, yogurt, and/or juice, and I personally think it’s best when soaked overnight.

What I like best about it is that there is no added sugar. So many so-called “healthy” breakfast foods are laden with sugar in one form or another; whether it’s the processed white stuff, honey, maple syrup, or evaporated can juice… they’re all sugar.

This muesli relies solely on apple juice sweetened dried cranberries and raisins for sweetness.

Muesli is also delicious sprinkled over yogurt or enjoyed with milk like regular cereal. It keeps well in an airtight container, and makes a lovely hostess or holiday gift.

Sunflower seeds are a more common addition, but I like chia seeds for their omega-3s and crunch.
