Breakfast of Champions

This is what we have for breakfast on the farm. Because Darling Daughter and I first ate it at Auntie Jean’s house, it has become known in our family as AntiGene Muesli.

And, since lots of visitors who eat it ask, here is the recipe:

We call it muesli.

Darling Daughter changed the recipe title.

I use about 1 tbsp of honey to a double size batch of this recipe. I like my muesli a bit toasted, so I extend the baking time to something more like an hour, stirring every 20 mins or so.

You can play with the ingredients to your heart’s content. I add almonds, brazils, cashews, and hazelnuts (depending on what is in the pantry at the time), also pumpkin seeds, LSA, buckwheat, and chopped prune instead of cranberries. My friend Mars adds chia seeds. Christine F adds treacle. If the Forbearing Husband made muesli he’d probably add chocolate.

What do you like in your muesli? Or if you don’t eat muesli, what’s your favorite breakfast food?



  1. Glad to know da good stuff being eaten everywhere! I agree with adding what you like as available and recall that C F adds molasses for xtra punch and less sugar. If FB prefers choc so be it but only high % cacao:) x Love to da lovely A x

    • We love our muesli and think of you whenever we make it. Forbearing Husband points out the antioxidant properties of cacao (hahaha). xx

  2. I’ve bin known to add choc too – xtra energy for dancing! Antioxidants = anti accidents – I like it!

  3. My only gripe is that I’m having to make it often as my husband has found my stash! Haven’t converted the girls yet. Thanks Jean

    • You may have to start storing it in a container marked ‘Lentils’. That should slow him down.
