I know… Christmas is over, but that doesn’t stop me from still enjoying all my favorite Christmas spices. This time in a homemade musli with rye flakes.
I love to put spices in my muesli. It really gives the muesli that extra twist that makes the classic breakfast meal a bit more special. I’ve mixed the rye flakes with puffed quinoa, almonds and dried apple cubes but you can add whatever you like. Dried apple however is just so good together with all the Christmas spices as cardamom and cloves, so I wouldn’t leave that out.

Muesli with rye flakes – One Christmas recipe out of many
It’s not the first time this vinter that I’ve created recipes with traditional Christmas spices. I’ve done it a few times over the last few weeks. See for example my pumpkin pancakes with Christmas spices or my rye porridge with Christmas spices. And now we’re at it I’ve also made these healthy Christmas date balls that I can really recommend you try eventhough it’s not the holiday season anymore.

This sounds so good! I am wondering where I can get puffed quinoa.
Julie Karla says
Hi Christine, If you can’t get a hold of the puffed quinoa, you can also used puffed wheat, oats or spelt, if that’s easier to find or maybe some kind of bran flakes.
