MYOF: Breakfast muesli

Muesli is my favorite breakfast on the trail. On trips where it is possible or even essential to bring your own food from home, I make a mixture of muesli with quite some other ingredients like whole milk powder, nuts (mostly hazel nuts), chocolate powder (Nestquick) and even dried fruits if desired. Here are two variations.

Preparation at home

Grind the nuts, sunflower seeds and muesli to a fine mass (this takes significantly less space when stored in your backpack). Then mix all other ingredients together and put into plastic bags or Ziploc bags.

On the trail

Put one portion into your cooking pot and add a desired amount of water, mix and eat. I don’t heat but you can do this as you wish off course.

  1. I’ve found in the depths of winter that a 50g bar of chocolate dropped into this kind of mix just before you add some boiling water makes for a warm, calorie packed way to start the day 🙂

    I eat mine straight out of a ziploc bag. I only ever heat up water or melt snow in my cook pot.
