  • Another Yummy Granola Recipe: CFO’s Muesli

    My husband loves this and has it for breakfast just about every workday. It does require a bit of advance planning since the base mixture has to be refrigerated overnight but otherwise it is very easy.

    CFO’s Muesli

    1/4 cup oats
    scant 1/4 cup milk
    1 heaping tablespoon dried cranberries
    1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
    dash of cinnamon
    1/4 cup blueberries (you can use frozen, just thaw first)
    1/2 apple, finely chopped
    1/3 cup Yummy Granola

    1. Combine the oats, milk, cranberries, flaxseed and cinnamon and refrigerate overnight.

    2. Stir in the blueberries, apple and Yummy Granola and enjoy!

    Nutrition bonus: Again, the oats and fruit are a good source of fiber. Flaxseed is a good source of fiber and healthy fat. Blueberries top the list of most beneficial fruit, but dried cranberries and apples are on that list too.
