Homemade Muesli #festfoods

Are you ready for the simplest {like, embarrassingly simple} and most delicious breakfast/snack/anytime food? It’s here, folks. Homemade muesli made with toasted oats, nuts and dried fruit. 

Homemade muesli can last up to 7 days in an airtight container or baggie. Enjoy it as is or with milk, like cereal. You can even heat it up with milk to make it like oatmeal or porridge.  It’s totally up to you!


Homemade Muesli
