Scandinavian Muesli

EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (155 votes)

Serve this Scandinavian cereal with low-fat yogurt or nonfat milk to start your day off with whole grains and some protein and calcium-rich dairy. You can substitute any combination of chopped dried or fresh fruit for the raisins—apricots, apples, figs, cherries or cranberries would all be delicious. Try walnuts or hazelnuts instead of the almonds if you like. Ground flaxseeds stirred in at the end provide a boost of heart-healthy omega-3s.

Add coconut last

Definitely add the coconut right before you stir in the honey/cinnamon/vanilla mixture, then pop it back in the oven for the 2 hours. I add milk to some and keep it in the fridge overnight for "overnight oats." It's delicious!

Smells amazing

I've been making muesli for a couple of years now for my family, but have never baked it. It's great (and a lot easier/faster) to just place plain oatmeal and any available add-ins (nuts, fruits, seeds) on the table with milk or yogurt for putting on top. My family loves it! I'm sure this baked version would be good too.

Scandinavian Meusli

I liked the idea of this. But, in Scandinavia they use something closer to Kefir to pour over it, not yogurt. All in all, a great idea. I am sure I'd tweak it to my tastes, but that's what cooking is all about, making something "your" family will love.

Great easy start for the day
Great Taste

I like this recipe but think the cooking directions could use some work. I know we are trying to go easy on oils, but the mixture stuck to the pan. Also, the coconut should probably be added later in the process as it burned.

Healthy and adaptable to many tastes
