  • 4 cups oats, rolled or barley, rolled
  • 2 cups California walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/4 cup raisins, plump
  • 1 apple, crisp, grated
  • 1 cup yogurt, plain, low-fat, nonfat, or kefir
  • Honey
Walnut Crumble
  • 1/2 cup California walnuts, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, unbleached, raw
  • A splash of water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Toss together the oats, walnuts, sunflower seeds, olive oil, salt, and cinnamon and spread in a thin layer on a baking sheet/tray. Toast until fragrant and slightly golden; 5 minutes. Cool.
  3. While the muesli bakes, make the walnut crumble. Toss together walnuts, sugar and a splash of water in a small pan over medium heat until the sugar caramelizes and glazes the walnuts lightly. Set aside to cool and roughly chop.
  4. Fill four bowls with 1/2 cup muesli each. Garnish with raisins, grated apple, and top with yogurt or kefir. Sprinkle each bowl with walnut crumble. Stir together and eat, with a touch of honey if desired.

*The remaining muesli and crumble can be stored in an airtight container.
