How to make Spartan Muesli

Forget about that stale, sugary old industrial cereal that comes in a box. For a healthy start to your day, a delicious bowl of Spartan Muesli gives you incredible flavor and all the nutrients you need for total energy. It's easy to prepare, and you can make plenty in advance. We recommend you have it with Spartan Cashew Milk.


3 ½ cups rolled old fashioned whole-grain oats
½ cup raisins
1 cup sugar-free, sulfur-free dried fruit bits (date, fig, apricot, prune, apple, pear, cranberry, peach, cherry, pineapple, coconut, etc.)
¾ cup ground yellow or brown flax seeds
½ cup raw chopped walnuts
¾ cup raw whole almonds
2 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
Spartan Cashew Milk
Fresh fruit (sliced banana, peaches, apples or blueberries)


1. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients well with a large fork.
2. To serve, in a bowl, combine ½ cup to ¾ cup of muesli mix with ¾ cup to 1 cup of cashew milk and top with 1 cup sliced fresh fruit or berries or a combination thereof.


Store in a large glass jar or bowl with lid. Place it in the cupboard to last a week, or in the refrigerator to last several weeks.
