Peasant Power Muesli
2 cups - rolled oats
1/2 cup - soy nuts (these add incredible crunchiness!!)
1/2 cup - almond slivers
1/2 cup - pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup - walnuts chopped
1/2 cup - coarsely chopped almonds
1/2 cup - dried cranberries, or apricots
1/4 cup - flax seeds, whole or ground
mix all ingredients and store in airtight container.
* Interesting food fact- Muesli was originally created in 1900 by the Swiss doctor, Maximillian Bircher-Benner. The very Swiss doctor was ahead of his time in nutritional research, believing in the benefits of a balanced diet that included raw fruits and vegetables. Of course his invention of the cereal muesli has been perverted by modern cereal companies that pack their cereals with refined sugar and corn syrup among many other unpronounceable and probably cancer causing ingredients. Do yourself a favor and try muesli in place of your morning cereal.
