Muesli With Pomegranate And Almonds

Muesli With Pomegranate And Almonds
Muesli is a healthy breakfast that is simple to prepare and delicious.   What I like about this recipe is you prepare the muesli the night before so that in the morning you just add some Greek yogurt and  toppings to the oat mixture. Voila, your breakfast is ready.

Begin by mixing together oats, apple juice, (I used orange juice), and some water.  Cover and let it chill overnight.  The next morning, stir in some Greek yogurt and divide the Muesli among the bowls.  Top the muesli with pomegranate seeds and chopped toasted almonds (I used walnuts).  Drizzle with honey and your breakfast is ready.

I love the flavor and texture the pomegranate seeds and the nuts add to the muesli.  The pomegranate seeds add a burst of flavor to practically every bite and the nuts add a nice crunchy texture.
