This easy muesli recipe is one of my holiday gifts this year. I love making homemade gifts and I have included some info on how to package this if you’d like to give it as a gift.
I love the glass canning jars and they come in colors now… I’ve seen green and purple at Target. Here is a sample of them in the photo below. They work great for storing the muesli.
I also found these cute tin containers* and ordered the 1/2 gallon size. They’re probably better for shipping.
I was amazed to see that original brand, Familia, at Whole Foods recently and they even have a sugar-free version. It’s very good. But, why not make it yourself. The ingredients are pretty handy and it’ll probably save you money. It is good for a reason.

Muesli is one of those foods that I’ve been eating since college. I remember having is at the youth hostels we’d travel to in Europe back then. Even saw the factory at some point… It’s great for breakfast, but also good for a snack or dessert.
This recipe has oats, wheat flakes, quinoa flakes, hemp hearts, ground flaxseeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, cocont flakes, and raisins. A whole grain, no-oil added mix of nourishing grains, nuts and seeds for vegan, plant-based start to your day.
It is SUPER nutritious and is filling enough to last to lunch. Top with homemade or store-bought soy yogurt, a few berries and your favorite non-dairy milk and boy that’s a delicious breakfast.
