Apple "Muesli" (grain free) // 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!

  1. Wow, I wish my mom had made that for me! 🙂

  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.

    • I hope you enjoy it. It’s such a simple recipe and so fast to make. Great for those mornings when you don’t have much time! 🙂

  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.

    • Sorry I’ve been so slow at responding to comments. Since my blog has been having so many issues, I’m a little behind! I see that you’ve already tried it and I am oh so happy that you enjoyed it! 🙂

  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! 🙂

  5. yum…looks very delicious and healthy too. I never try this recipe yet. Thank you for sharing. Dropping some love for Food Trip Friday, hope that you can return the favor too.

    • Hi Jessica! Great name! 😉 Thanks for stopping by and commenting. This is one of my favorite breakfasts. I’ll head over and check out your blog 🙂

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