Raw Muesli Recipe

Bob's Red Mill Muesli is one of the most popular store-bought brands of Muesli available. While it is a healthy, whole foods product, it is not a raw food. All almonds that are grown and harvested in the U.S.A. now have to be pasteurized - this includes the almonds in Bob's Red Mill muesli. Also, most store-bought rolled oats are steamed at about 220 degrees Fahrenheit to preserve flavor, so they are not truly raw.  The same can likely be said for the whole grain wheat, rye, triticale and barley in this muesli. That being said, the date crumbles, raisins, sunflower seeds and walnuts in Bob's Red Mill muesli are likely raw.

To serve, toss the ingredients well and serve in place of nuts, or enjoy in a bowl with almond milk and maple syrup. Or serve atop your favorite bowl of raw oatmeal!
