What the Bulk!?!?!? Muesli

Today's What the Bulk!?!?!? is another yummy cereal blend (muesli) What can I say? Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I like this particular recipe from Whole Foods, but want to encourage you to jazz things up any way you like. Think of this as a good base and throw in add-ins or subtractions (cool if you have goji berries in your pantry, but I'm guessing most of us don't!)

Loaded with satisfying textures and flavors, try this delicious breakfast cereal as you would a cold cereal, or cook and serve like oatmeal. This recipe makes enough for a crowd or for you to keep in your pantry for a few weeks.


2 1/4 cups quick-cooking oats (bulk!)
1 cup shelled hemp seeds (bulk!)
1 cup raisins
3/4 cup dried goji berries, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup chopped pitted dates
1/2 cup raw green pumpkin seeds (bulk!)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


Combine all ingredients in a bowl and toss to combine. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.

To serve warm, combine 1/2 cup muesli with 1/2 cup liquid (unsweetened hempmilk, unsweetened soymilk or almond milk) and simmer on the stovetop until oats are softened, 1 to 2 minutes.
