Muesli

I have been getting gluten free oats and making muesli. Living Young has some great info about properly prepared grains. When I made muesli in the past I never soaked my oats but after reading about the health benefits I have changed my ways!

 I soak the oats in water and fresh lemon juice overnight, then drain it in the morning

Scoop some of the soaked/drained oats into a bowl and add banana slices 

Next I warm up some frozen berries and place them on top 

Then I pour in some cashew milk 

Sometimes I add 3 drops of stevia and give it a couple of stirs. For those of you who enjoy your milk turning pink from those artificial breakfast cereals, you are lucky you will get the same result without the ill effects. 

Muesli
Soak 1 cup of gf oats in 2 cups of water with fresh lemon, orange, or apple juice. 
In the morning drain the oats and scoop some oats into a bowl. 
Add toppings that you like: fruit, nuts, seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, or nut butters
Pour non-dairy milk over the top and enjoy!

Nope, that is the beauty of muesli when they are soaked overnight they are soft enough eat the next day. Soaking in fresh juice also gets rid of phytic acid and makes it easier to digest.
If you prefer them warm you could then heat them up.
