Cardamom & Chia Muesli

I’ve been itching to make my own homemade Muesli so I’m excited to be finally sharing this because this recipe definitely hits the spot. Boxed cereals are often loaded with sugar and are far less balanced, so I absolutely love the dried fruit and nuts in here to add in some extra vitamins and healthy fats. Adding in chia seeds isn’t traditional, but I love adding these in, as they pack extra fiber and omega-3 punch. Interestingly enough, Muesli was invented by a Swiss physician as an appetizer, but I personally eat this like I would any breakfast cereal – in the morning right after I wake up and get my tea. The cinnamon and cardamom add lovely warmth as well and toasting the oats and nuts bring out an earthier, nuttier flavor. This recipe is really customizable, so have fun with whatever fruit and nuts you have on hand!
