Muesli Mix

  • 4 cups of rolled oats
  • ½ cup of seeds such as sunflower or pumpkin
  • ½ cup of raisins or dried cranberries
  • ¼ - ½ cup of other dried fruit such as goji berries dates, chopped apricots - anything you like!
  • Mix everything in a gallon-size zip top bag and shake to combine.

Overnight Oats (Serves 2 human-powered traveler appetites)

  • 1.5 cups muesli homemade or store bought
  • 2 T of chia seeds
  • 1 small handful of nuts about 12 - almond, pecans, walnuts - it’s your choice!
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • Almond milk or other plant based milk


  1. Add the muesli, chia seeds, nut, and cinnamon to your pot or other covered bowl.
  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Add enough almond milk to cover the muesli by about an inch.
  4. Stir to combine. If the milk is absorbed by the oats and you can see the muesli mix, add enough milk to cover the mix until only a few pieces of fruit or nuts and seeds are visible (see the last photo as a reference).
  5. Cover and let sit overnight.
  6. In the morning, the oats will have absorbed the milk your muesli will be ready to eat! Serve and add any additional sweeteners like maple syrup, top with seasonal fresh fruit and enjoy!
