I encourage you to play around with this recipe adding different ingredients, super foods and finding your favorite mix!
1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium to large bowl.
2. To serve, portion the muesli into individual bowls with soy yogurt or a dairy-free milk alternative along with small amount of fresh fruit (berries are high in antioxidants!). Muesli will keep in an airtight container for up to 2 months.

Words of wisdom
Aim for little or no dried fruit in your muesli, as dried fruit contains large amounts of a sugar called “fructose” which is hard for your body to digest and utilize, can spike your sugar levels, and can cause gastrointestinal trouble in sensitive individuals.
