Easy Muesli Recipe
This Easy Muesli Recipe makes the perfect healthy weekday breakfast. Making it in bulk only takes 10 minutes! It checks all the boxes. Keeps you fuller for longer, you can make it in advance, it’s packed full of yummy, healthy ingredients like crispy almonds, sweet sultanas, fibre, protein, and antioxidants. You can dress it up with yogurt, any type of milk or fruit. My favourite is banana and berries. So delicious!
What I love most about this Easy Muesli Recipe!
I love how easy this is to make and how cheap it is. But I love how tasty and delicious it is! Unlike sugary breakfast cereals, this doesn’t leave you feeling gross. But instead, it helps keep you fuller for longer!
How cheap is it?
In short, you’re paying AUD$10.28 per kg for store bought muesli. And if you make your own, you’re paying AUD$7.50. Way cheaper to make yourself!
Let’s break it down!
It’s super cheap and super easy to make. Make it in bulk and it’s ready for you to have for breakfast for months! And no, you won’t need to even shop in bulk or at any specialty stores. Everything is available at your local supermarket.
Just a note, these prices are in Australian dollars and are specific to where I live in Melbourne. I opted in for the organic ingredients, which hiked up the price a little, but you can make this even cheaper by just buying regular ingredients that aren’t organic.
- 750g Rolled Oats – $1.40
- 200g Organic Coconut Flakes – $3.50
- 250g Natural Almond Kernels – $7.00
- 530g Kellogg’s All-Bran Breakfast Cereal – $3.50
- 1kg Australian Sultanas (unsweetened) – $5.00
So in total? $20.40. That’s for 2.7kg of muesli!
How much does store bought Muesli cost?
Seems like a lot. But how much does one packet of good quality Muesli cost with roughly the same ingredients? $9.00 for 875g. It serves 19 with each serving size being 45g. That’s about $0.47 cents per serving. $10.28 per kg (1000g)
How much does our home made one cost?
Well, the above ingredients come to 2.7kg. How much is each kg of our home-made cereal? $7.47. That’s 2.81 cheaper per kg, or a total saving of $7.50 if you were buying 2.7kg of sore bought muesli!
Ok, so after all of that, not only are you saving money (even more if the ingredients are on sale) but you get to choose which ingredients you want in your cereal!
What are the ingredients I need?
Rolled oats – You can use quick oats here, but rolled oats are cheaper and keep you fuller for longer.
Coconut flakes – I use unsweetened coconut flakes. These helps give a little bit of crunch and sweetness to the muesli.
Almond Kernels – I used natural almonds. But roasted ones would be so delicious in this!
All-Bran Breakfast Cereal (I used Kellogg’s brand) – I added this in here for extra fibre. Also it helps keep you full!
Sultanas – these are in there purely for added sweetness. If you don’t like them, you can use fresh fruit like bananas or berries, or even add dried goji berries.
Let’s go through each step.
There’s really nothing to it! It’s just one step! Add everything to a large tub and mix them together!
My Top Tips!
My biggest tip here is that you can mix anything into this, take anything out. Here’s some other ingredients you can add:
- Sunflower seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sesame seeds
- Dried apricots
- Dried goji berries
- Chocolate chips
- Dried blueberries
