Almond Cranberry Muesli

(16 servings)

  • 5 cups old-fashioned oats (not instant)
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (raisins will also work)
  • 1/3 cup chopped dried apricots - optional
Place all ingredients in an air-tight container until ready to serve. This will store well for a several weeks.

To make 2 servings of the muesli, combine 1 cup of the mixture above with 2 cups of milk in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 5 minutes on high. Allow cereal to cool for 3 or 4 minutes and serve warm.

You can replace the dried fruit in this recipe with other dried fruits if you wish to experiment. I sometimes add a little sugar or honey to the warm cereal too.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank DixieChick for this recipe.
