My Musli Mix

I am the kind of person who could sit and eat breakfast for hours. Jay is the complete opposite. If we stay in a hotel I always want to make sure it has a GREAT BIG breakfast buffé. Jay never has more than a cup of coffee or two. On weekends I usually treat my family with pancakes, French toast, waffles or scones to make it special. Jay might then have an American pancake or two with Maple Syrup, if I'm lucky.

During the vacation we ate a lot of bread and when coming back home I really longed for some plain yogurth with my homemade musli for breakfast. I think that is my everyday breakfast favourite after all. Simple, quick and perfect for a helathy start of the day.  I make my own nutty musli mix form my favourite nuts, grains and seeds.

My Musli Mix

1 cup walnuts
1 cup pecans
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup linseeds

Mix chopped up walnuts and pecans, sesame seeds, linseeds and some oat meal in a bowl. Put in a pretty jar and label it. Keep dry. Sprinkle on top of Greek or natural yougurth. Drizzle with honey. Bon appetit!

You can of course alternate this recipe and use any nuts of your choice. Add sunflower seeds, raisins or chopped up dried apricots.

I make sure to fill My Musli Mix jar regularly, ready to be sprinkled on top of my yogurt.  That to me feels like a healthy start of a brand new day. And today I am going back to CrossFit. The first class after 4 weeks of absence... It is going to be a tough one. Cheer me on! Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

  3. thanks for the inspiration Annette. I just rushed off and made some! I have run out of museli and realized I have the ingredients to make it! I also added raisins, coconut and sunflower seeds. So easy! Heather x

  4. I'm completely with you on the hotel breakfasts, I do delight it a lovely wide buffet selection too. Although, like you, my favourite breakfast is a simple affair. Just bran flakes, oat flakes and a small sprinkle of sultanas for me!

    Good luck with the cross fit - you can do it!

  6. My favorite way to start the day is with yogurt and my homemade granola! Much like your Musli, only toasted and slightly sweetened.
