Hi, Friends! Today I’m sharing a recipe my mom has made for my three sisters and me since we were kids: Apple & Oat Muesli. According to Google, Muesli originated in Switzerland, so I’m counting this one as a European recipe.
This is my all-time favorite go-to recipe for a quick breakfast. It’s made almost entirely of pantry staples, other than the apple. But, come on, how difficult is it to keep a few apples around the house, right?
It’s essentially like making your own breakfast cereal. I love it because I can totally control the ingredients I put in, which makes it easy to keep my diet organic-friendly. You can throw this together in under five minutes, and the recipe is easily doubled or tripled for large groups.
My sisters and I all love this easy and delicious breakfast. It’s also great for camping trips!
To make this you just need dry oats (the quick cooking kind), ground cinnamon, sliced almonds, honey, diced apples, and milk.
Start by putting the oats in a bowl and sprinkling in some ground cinnamon.
Then, drizzle with honey…
…and add some sliced almonds.
Add the diced apples…
…and give it a stir.
Pour in the milk…
I also made you a really low-quality GIF of the process just for funzies.
Here’s the Recipe!
- 1 cup quick cooking dry oats
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- 1 Tablespoon sliced almonds
- 1/3 cup diced firm apple, such as Gala, Fiji, or Braeburn
- 1/2 cup milk
- Combine the first five ingredients in a small bowl.
- Stir well, then pour in the milk.

Okay, you guys. I found a piece of property yesterday that I looooooove. It’s in the perfect location (not too far from town, but has privacy), is almost 5 acres, and is covered in gorgeous trees. It’s a steep piece of property, so we would build our house at the very top like a treehouse! Amazing, right?
Oh, except the asking price is higher than what we want, annnnnnd we’d have to dig a well, bring electricity up from the road, install a gas line, put in a septic system, and pave a ridiculously long and steep switchback in order to get up to the house. Annnnnd we may or may not get stuck up there in the event of an ice storm.
It’s just so pretty!
Okay, I gotta run – but I’ll keep you updated as things progress.
