Swiss muesli


If you need to get up and going, müesli is great. Cereals, nuts, fruit and milk or yogurt make a well balanced breakfast. Now you can prepare your own.


1 c oats (old fashioned style rolled oats, not the cook quick type)
1 c spelt (toasted spelt flakes)
1⁄2 t cinnamon
1 t sugar (vanilla sugar)
1⁄4 c maple syrup
1⁄4 c nuts (chopped nuts, your favorite type)
1⁄3 c raisin
1 apple (peeled and cored, sliced or grated)
  milk (or yogurt, to taste)


Prepare the cereal

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C).
  2. In a bowl, mix oat, spelt flakes, cinnamon and vanilla sugar. Pour maple syrup, stirring until well mixed.
  3. Coat a large baking sheet with melted butter and cover with an even layer of cereal. Bake until the cereal flakes turn golden brown -about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  4. Pour cereal into an airtight container and add nuts and raisins, mixing well.


  1. Distribute cereal among 4 bowls. Add the grated apple and milk or yogurt to taste.


Increase oats to 2 cups, if no spelt flakes are available.

Store the cereal in the fridge for up to a week.

Use no-stick cooking spray to coat the baking sheet -faster, but without the taste of butter.

Instead of serving the cereal with fresh apple, add 1 cup chopped dried apple slices to the cereal at the same time you add the nuts.
