Delightful Homemade Muesli Cereal - A Breakfast Treat











Start your day with a bowl of nourishing homemade muesli cereal, perfectly combining crunchy nuts, hearty grains, and a touch of sweetness. This dairy-free, lacto-ovo vegetarian breakfast is not only delicious but also packs a nutritional punch.


Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Let's start by getting our oven ready for baking. Preheat it to a cozy 250 degrees F to ensure a slow and gentle toasting of our muesli mix. This step is crucial to achieve that perfect crunch without burning any of the delicate ingredients. While we wait, take this time to gather all your ingredients and tools, making the next steps even easier!
Pro Tip: Place the oven rack in the middle for even heat distribution.

Step 2: Mix Wet Ingredients

In a bowl, combine the olive oil and honey. Give it a slight warm-up to make the mixture more pourable. This helps in evenly coating our grains and nuts, infusing them with a touch of sweetness and richness from the olive oil. Plus, who doesn't love the smell of honey as it warms up? It's like a hug for your senses!
Pro Tip: Warming helps the honey mix more easily with the oil.

Step 3: Combine Dry Ingredients

Next, mix all your dry ingredients in an oven-proof dish. This is where the magic starts. Rolled oats, wheat bran, wheat germ, and chopped cashews come together to form the bulk of our homemade muesli. Pour the warmed oil-honey mixture over this, giving everything a good stir to make sure each piece is well-coated. Your kitchen is about to smell amazing!
Pro Tip: Stir thoroughly to ensure even coating on all ingredients.

Step 4: Bake and Cool

Slide your dish into the oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Remember to stir now and then to help everything toast evenly. After baking, let it cool for an hour. This not only makes it crunchier but also makes it safer to handle. Once it's cool, serve yourself a generous portion, maybe add some fresh fruit or yogurt, and enjoy the perfect start to your day!
Pro Tip: Letting it cool completely enhances the crunch.
