What’s your favorite superfood to add into your muesli?


  • Muesli Ingredients :
  • 2 cups rolled grains (mix of oats, flaked quinoa or flaked amaranth work well)
  • 4 tsp chia seeds
  • 4 tsp hemp seeds
  • ¼ tsp cardamom
  • Topping Options :
  • Raw sunflower seeds
  • Pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
  • Freeze dried berries
  • Unsweetened almond milk


  • Toss your grains, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and cardamom (cinnamon is wonderful too) together and store in an airtight glass jar at room temperature.

  • Scoop ½ cup portion into a bowl, top with your desired amount of toppings, and serve with almond milk (or your choice of milk).

  • Mix well and keep a little almond milk on the side to add as you eat if you’d like, seeing as the grains soak up quite a bit.
