The photo shows a bowl of this vegan DIY muesli mix with berries and vegan milk.
- 5 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- 1/3 cup raisins or currants
- 1/3 cup dried blueberries
- 1/3 cup goji berries
Place ingredients in your large jar, attach the lid and shake, twist and roll until evenly distributed. If using a large bowl, stir mixture and add to container of choice.
When ready to serve, add 1/2 – 3/4 cup of muesli to your bowl, add enough vegan milk to cover and let set for about 5 minutes or so until the oats soften a bit. Add a little sweetener of choice (I use a drizzle of maple syrup) and some fresh berries such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries. Sliced strawberries and/or bananas would also be great. If you have some dried mulberries on hand, throw some in they taste great! When ready to eat, add a little extra vegan milk as you like. Once you’ve made this a few times, you’ll find your perfect way.
To make overnight muesli, add about 3/4 cup muesli to a jar/bowl, top with fruits of choice if you like and cover with vegan milk. Seal or cover and keep in the refrigerator overnight or up to 3 days (make a few so they’re ready to grab and enjoy or take along). Mix before eating, add a little extra vegan milk as needed (if at all).
Makes about 7 cups serving approx. 9 – 14.
Feel free to add 1/2 cup of flaked or shredded coconut. You can change up the dried fruit by adding dried cranberries, chopped dates, cherries or apricots etc. Add any nuts and seeds you prefer. Slivered almonds are great in the mix. Mix and match as you like making this your own!
If you’re not going to top with any fresh fruit, feel free to add in another 1/2 cup or so of dried fruit of choice.
5 cups rolled oats
1 cup mixed nuts & seeds
1 cup mixed dried fruit (pref. unsweetened varieties)
