Perfect breakfast muesli

Tasty and healthy option.

Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day but it can be difficult to think up new ideas for meals every morning. Not only do you need something that is going to get you all the good nutrients but also something that won’t taste like cardboard.

No one feels likes cooking an extravagant meal while they’re still half asleep, which is what makes this muesli so great. This recipe will have you sorted for the whole week with basically no effort. Just serve up the prepared muesli with a side of your choice and enjoy.

This is definitely a nutritious and delicious breakfast that makes a perfect morning meal!
