My Notes :
  • The baking at the last step is purely optional but I do this for extra crispness and this will also make the muesli stay crisp for longer - Tip from Prathiba
  • Store it in an airtight container for the crispness to stay longer.
  • Muesli is totally flexible, you can just have the cup measurement in mind and add in any nuts and dry fruits of your choice.
  • Add milk preferably cold but if you like it hot, then go ahead.
