Gluten-free Swiss Apple Muesli (and the Bob’s Red Mill GF giveaway continues)

February 6, 2013


In my previous working life, we would occasionally have off-site meetings at Toronto’s Prince Hotel.

If we started first thing in the morning, we were often treated to this amazing swiss muesli, a nutty, chewy whole grain blend with milk, yogurt, blueberries, and the distinct flavours of vanilla and apple.

Often conference room breakfasts consist of high-fat baked goods such as croissants and bagels along with cheese and fruit platters.  And while we were offered these items, word would quickly get around, and everyone would be after that muesli.

Bob’s Red Mill has introduced a gluten-free muesli that brings me back to that wonderful cereal.  And it’s quite simple to recreate.  The version that I just described had vanilla yogurt, making it somewhat thick.  This is a personal preference thing, and you can either use it or leave it out.  The choice is yours.


First, soak the muesli overnight in vanilla almond milk.  The next morning, add in a dollop of yogurt (optional), half a shredded apple (per serving) and berries of your choice.

What a way to start the day.

If you are gluten-free or you have guests who are, this is a wonderful breakfast option.

This week, we have one fabulous gluten-free prize package available for one lucky winner in a random draw, generously provided by Bob’s Red Mill.
