In its very basic form, Muesli is uncooked rolled oats soaked in milk and then combined with lemon juice, fresh and dried fruit, an assortment of nuts and seeds. Aside from being nutritious, this is a light and delicious way to break one's fast. It is also simple enough to put together in the middle of the morning rush. If you have only ever eaten Muesli from a box, make your very own. You will not be unhappy!
To serve 4
2 cups rolled oats (you can use steel cut but it will be heavier to chew and must be soaked overnight)
1 1/2 cup milk (I used unsweetened vanilla soy)
1/2 cup dried fruit - raisins, chopped dates, apricots
4 Fuji, Gala or similar sweet apples
4 Tbsp lemon or orange juice
1/3 cup chopped almonds and pistachios, toasted
1 1/4 Greek Yogurt or Skyr (try coconut cream if vegan)
Maple syrup, if desired
Berries or seasonal fruits
Soak the oats and dried fruit in milk, stir and allow it to stand until most of the liquid has been absorbed (about 30-45 minutes). Add the yogurt and maple syrup (if using). Grate the apples and tip into the oat mixture along with lemon or orange juice. Portion into individual bowls, top with fresh fruit and nuts and serve.
