Muesli is pretty much the same deal as granola, but the grains are soaked overnight (usually in milk, cream or yogurt with a squeeze of lemon) allowing for easier digestion. As with any granola recipe add what you like and omit what you don't.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Combine oats, rye, half and half, and vanilla in a small bowl. In another bowl, combine orange juice and raisins. Cover both bowls with plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to let oats and raisins soften.
  2. Put pecans and almonds into a food processor and pulse to chop coarsely. Transfer nuts to a large bowl along with 6 tbsp. of the coconut, the sunflower seeds, wheat germ, flaxseeds, and salt. Add the oat mixture along with the orange juice and raisins and stir in the yogurt, honey, prunes and apples until combined. Divide the muesli between bowls and garnish with the remaining coconut.
  3. Serves 6-8
