Muesli has become one of my favorite breakfasts. Each week I mix up a batch with all of the ingredients and store it so that we can grab it for breakfast at any time. If you love oats as much as we do, you will want to try these gluten free oatmeal breakfast bars too!
You get to control all of the ingredients, and you can make it different every week! The most important tip is to make sure you use certified gluten free oats. Whole rolled oats can get easily cross-contaminated anywhere from the fields to how it is stored so please make sure your oats brand says "certified gluten free" on the package.
My favorite certified gluten free oats are:
- Trader Joe's gluten free brand of oats (light blue pack)
- Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats
- Quaker Certified Gluten Free Rolled Oats
- Nature's Path Gluten Free Oats
- Certified gluten free whole rolled oats
- Shredded unsweetened coconut
- Chia seeds
- Sunflower seeds

You can use quick oats, but your muesli will be very mushy once you add in the milk or non-dairy milk.
You can cook muesli, but it really would be considered oatmeal if you cook it.
Muesli will keep in your pantry for a long time if you keep it in an air-tight sealed container. If you store it longer than a week or two, the nuts and seeds can get rancid. We usually make a week's worth at a time, which is what this recipe calls for.
If you are dairy-free, you can easily substitute any type of milk with this muesli.
- 2 cups certified gluten free whole rolled oats
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/3 cup pecans, chopped
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
- Place all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix.
- Put into a sealed air-tight container to store.
- This should keep up to 2 weeks.
- When you are ready to eat, just pour some in a bowl and add milk or non-dairy milk.
1. It is important to use certified gluten free oats.
2. You need to use whole rolled oats, not quick oats. Otherwise your muesli will be very mushy.
3. You can substitute the mix-ins for anything you like!
