Muesli, by definition, is a breakfast cereal usually made of untoasted rolled oats, nuts and dried fruit eaten with milk or yogurt. Those with gluten intolerance, who are sensitive to oats, cannot enjoy this old time favorite.
Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods, has developed a Gluten Free Muesli using gluten-free oats sourced from a group of farmers in an isolated valley in Saskatchewan, Canada. These farmers grow the oats in dedicated farm fields free of gluten-containing grains. In addition to the gluten-free oats the muesli contains sunflower and pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries and apples, raisins, brown rice crisps, dried soybeans, almonds and coconut. A ¼ cup serving has 110 calories, 3 grams of fat (no cholesterol), 19 grams of carb (of which 5 grams are sugar and 2 grams are fiber) and no sodium or potassium.
Like any muesli product, Gluten Free Muesli can be eaten as a cold cereal, a cooked cereal, or in the traditional Swiss way, soaked in the fridge overnight in milk or yogurt and topped with fresh apple just before eating.
