2tablespoonscoarsely chopped nuts or seeds(we love pepitas or pecans)
2tablespoonspeanut butter or roasted almond butter (Note 2)
2/3cupmilk(we love coconut or almond milk)
1/8teaspoonfine sea salt
For serving (optional): scoop of coconut yogurt, drizzle of maple syrup/honey, scoop of nut butter, fresh berries
APPLE: Grate the unpeeled apple on the large holes of a box grater. Set aside.
MUESLI: In a medium-sized bowl, add the remaining ingredients except for the optional serving suggestions. Add in the grated apple. Mix well, until ingredients are completely combined.
CHILL: Transfer mixture to 2 mason jars and cover. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes, up to 5 days.
ENJOY: Enjoy straight out of the fridge (chilled) with any optional toppings such as an extra splash of milk, drizzle of sweetener, scoop of nut butter or yogurt, and/or fresh berries. Enjoy!
Note 1: Apple: A grated apple adds texture and sweetness -- use Granny Smith (more tart) or Honeycrisp/Fuji (more sweet).Note 2: Nut butter: We like almond or peanut butter best. Peanut butter has a stronger flavor while almond butter is more muted -- use whichever you prefer. As far as almond butter goes, I recommend a slow-roasted and lightly salted almond butter you enjoy eating straight from the jar.
