One of my favorite breakfasts during the week is a bowl of Muesli with homemade yogurt, and a sliced banana. When I lived on the West Coast, I did most of my shopping at this awesome store called WinCo. Many of you will know of this store and probably love it as much as I do. For those of you who have not experienced WinCo, let me tell you about it.
There is a section of the store called their bulk section. I feel so happy when I walk through these aisles of the store. Bin after bin after bin of dry goods, just waiting for you scoop them into bags and take them home. Tons of different kinds of flours, sugars, beans, pasta, spices, you name it!
One of the things that I would buy when I would shop there was their bulk Muesli. Before we moved, I bought several pounds of it, not knowing when I’d be able to buy it again. Sadly, I finished my stash last week.
What was I to do, you might wonder? Oh, I’m so glad you asked! Before I finished it all off, I scooped out 1 cup (150 grams) of the mix and spent hours (yes, hours) carefully sorting through its contents to figure out what all was in it. Once I finished sorting, I weighed each ingredient to figure out how many grams of each was in the cup. This way, I could figure out a ratio for making a big batch.
I’m happy to announce that it worked! Well, I think that it worked anyways. I don’t know exactly how they make their Winco Muesli, but I think that mine is pretty close.
I had my first bowl of home-made Muesli this morning, and it was delicious! I made a whole gallon so that I have it for about a month or two. The ingredients are all by weight because that seemed like the most accurate way to measure everything.
I’ve inserted links for where to buy the ingredients on Amazon, though some of them will probably be easier to buy in your local grocery stores–nothing like the convenience of buying groceries online though.

- 432 grams Raisins
- 1120 grams Old Fashioned Oats (rolled oats)
- 560 grams Rolled Wheat or Rolled/flaked Barley
- 64 grams Flax seeds (whole)
- 192 grams Pumpkin seeds
- 24 grams Sliced Almonds (or slivered)
After weighing out all of the ingredients, mix them in a large bowl until everything is evenly distributed. Store the mixture in an airtight container. Enjoy this heart-healthy breakfast with your choice of yogurt and fruit.
