Apple “Muesli” (grain free)


Apple "Muesli" (grain free) // deliciousobsessions.com Follow Me on Pinterest

This apple “muesli” recipe is from my childhood. My mother used to make this for me for breakfast or an afternoon snack. I had completely forgotten about it until she reminded me about it a few years ago. I was so excited to make it again and when I did, I was immediately transported back to her kitchen. Food stirs up such powerful memories for some people, myself included. Different tastes and smells remind me of people and places from my past on a regular basis.

So many of the recipes I share here are from my childhood. My mother is an excellent cook and I owe my success in the kitchen to her. She had me helping her in the kitchen from a very young age and my love for cooking is because of her.

There is no gluten, dairy, or grains in this “muesli”. It’s a delicious and healthy breakfast or snack and can be made in a snap. You can use whatever nuts you like and could add different fruits even and I’m sure it would be delicious!

Shout out to my friend Suzanne from Strands of My Life for shooting the photo for this recipe!

  2. Looks yummy! Thanks for sharing. We have so many apples at the moment, so I’m always looking for ways to use them up.

  3. I’m drooling and wishing that I had some apples right now.  (Should I be embarrassed to admit that?)  Thanks for the idea for my future breakfasts, though.  I have a very limited breakfast menu.

  4. Guess what I’m eating right now! 

    Silly me, I didn’t print out the recipe, but thought I could remember it.  So… mine is made of an apple and 1/4 cup of the nuts and coconut.  That’s a lot of breakfast!!!  I rarely eat any sweeteners so I didn’t add the maple syrup.  This big, honkin’ bowl of breakfast is wonderfully sweet without it!

    Thanks for the recipe (even if I didn’t follow it correctly)!  Delicious!

    • Yay! So glad you liked it. Yeah. depending on how big your apple is, it can end up making enough for two people. All of my gala apples have been really small recently, so it’s been the perfect serving for me. So glad you enjoyed it! :)

  6. This sounds wonderful and easy! It could be made even healthier if
    I soak the nuts first, and peel the almonds!
