Pumpkin seed and almond muesli

bowl of muesli with milk and a spoon in it
A new year and an old favourite. It's cereal with a tough name to spell! I had to look it up, like twice. Generally I have cooked oats for breakfast but it's nice to spice things up a little (large flake, quick cook, steel cut, I have them all but it's all still porridge). 

Store-bought muesli is crazy expensive and usually has added sugar. Once I made this batch, I knew I'd be making more soon. It's still inspiring me to get out of bed every morning since I made it. It's that good! This version has a hint of sweetness but if you like a sweeter cereal, just add more raisins. The ingredients were easy to find between the health food store and Costco for the hemp hearts.

Happy breakfast eating! Does anyone have any variations they'd like to share?  I'm always looking for ways to spruce up breakfast.
