Simple & Healthy Muesli Breakfast


In preparation for our Maui trip this year I decided to do a few more recipe revamps on the blog of some of my favorite, and still popular recipes. These revamps are such a great way to take old content (sometimes with embarrassingly bad photography…at least I’ve come a long way?!) and give them new life. 

I’m sure if you are a regular reader you see that I do this on occasion and it’s always nice to see these old posts get some fresh love!

Today’s muesli breakfast is a favorite of mine and has been for years. I’m actually pretty sure I ate this for breakfast every morning for about 6-months straight back in 2015. Seriously! It’s just so tasty, fresh, simple, and perfectly filling for those who like to be satisfied but not stuffed at breakfast.

Simple & Healthy Breakfast Muesli - easy, quick, and healthy!

Is muesli good for breakfast?


That would be a resounding yes!

Muesli is filling, healthy and quick – which is what everyone can benefit from in the morning, right?? In less than 5-minutes this bowl can be easily whipped up, providing the body with complex and simple carbohydrates for energy, fibre for healthy digestion, proteins for blood stabilization and fats for that satisfying factor! 

This breakfast bowl is definitely well balanced nutritionally and is actually a breakfast that I’ve been making myself while here in Maui too as it’s a great way to start the day before heading off to the beach or out for a snorkel. It’ energizing, not too filling as to leave you feeling heavy, and it’s easily digested!

Simple & Healthy Breakfast Muesli / Gluten Free + Dairy Free

How do you eat muesli for breakfast?


One of the best things about muesli for breakfast is that you really can get creative and alter it to your liking.

With Fruit // Enjoy the muesli with berries or change it up to different fruit like peaches or diced apple.

With Yogurt or Milk // Along with the muesli you can have Greek yogurt, coconut yogurt, or almond yogurt, or regular or non-dairy milk.

With Tasty Toppings // Sprinkle with your favourite fun toppings like cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, and toasted coconut.

Try It Cooked // You can also enjoy muesli warm by mixing it with milk, regular or non-dairy, on the stovetop until thicker like an oatmeal consistency. 

The sky’s the limit with this one!

I’d actually love to host a friends brunch in the future and make breakfast muesli bowls the main dish with a table spread with all the different add-ins and toppings. Wouldn’t that be a fun way to gather with friends, enjoy a healthy meal, and get creative at the same time?
