easy breakfast cereal


Easy, Frugal, Healthy, and QUICK!
I like recipes like that!

Breakfast Cereal (Muesli)

Mix in a large bowl:
Approximately 8 or 12 cups organic rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1 cup organic raisins
This is the base, and then you can add anything else you like, for example:
wheat germ,
dried blueberries,
flax,
dried apples,
sliced almonds,
sunflower seeds,

You can use all of these, or only some. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon if you like.
You can make it different every time, if you want!

All you will do is stir it around in the bowl till combined, and then store in an airtight container. This makes quite a bit of cereal (we have four children), and even if cheerios were cheaper (which I haven't penciled out), this is definately healthier, and even my nine year old can make it with no help. Now breakfast will be ready made for the next several days, all you need is some soy milk or something to pour over top. My kids like it cold, just the way it is, with no sweetener. Occasionally we use kefir, or yogurt instead of soymilk.
