  1. To make muesli, combine oats, wheat germ or bran, dried fruit, walnuts, almonds, and pumpkin seeds. This will make about 3 cups of muesli. Store leftover muesli in a tightly sealed bag or container.
  2. To make the overnight oats, combine 1 cup of the muesli mixture with 2 cartons of yogurt, shredded apple and orange juice in two small bowls or mason jars. Mix well and refrigerate overnight.
  3. When ready to serve, top each with a dollop of yogurt and fresh or frozen fruit.


Simple Swaps: Try it with pecans, raisins, cranberries, dried apricots or dried blueberries; add 2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut; substitute plain or your favorite flavored Greek yogurt.



  • The dry muesli mixture can be stored for up to 2 months in an airtight container.
  • Buy nuts and grains in bulk to reduce cost and food waste. 
  • For a delicious warm version, cook the muesli exactly like regular oatmeal: ½ cup oat mixture and ½ cup milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir and add favorite toppings!
  • To turn the entire batch of muesli into overnight oats, combine the dry ingredients with 2 (32-ounce) containers of plain or vanilla Greek yogurt and refrigerate overnight.
