Did you know that muesli was invented in 1900? A Swiss physician named Maximilian Bircher-Benner invented it for the patients in his hospital, where a diet rich in fruits and veggies was a part of their therapy. Smart guy, that Max Bircher-Benner. He actually a pioneer of the high-raw food diet way, way before it was cool.
Anyway, for my next cookbook project, which features veganized versions of trendy foods from the 20th century, I absolutely had to include a muesli recipe! Here's my Hot Muesli with Dates and Almonds:
And here's the recipe. It makes 14 servings of dry mix, so you can store this in your pantry for those weekdays when you don't feel like cookin' a big ole breakfast. Eat plain or sweeten with maple syrup. Top with nut butter (or Biscoff cookie butter if you're feeling naughty).
Hot Muesli with Dates and Almonds
Makes 14 1/2-cup servings
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups barley flakes
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped Medjool dates
1/2 cup slivered almonds
Mix everything together in a large bowl. Transfer to a storage container.
Mix 1/2 cup muesli mix with 1 cup plant milk or water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Turn off heat. Cover and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes.
I love your blog but you accidently transpose the "u" and "e" in muesli.
Thanks!! I'm the world's worst at transposing vowels! It has been corrected.
I'll give it a try Saturday.
