Homemade Muesli

Pretty sure I pointed this out before...I'm a breakfast girl. I love my cereal, oatmeal, granola, pancakes, etc. WELL, I had a handful of almonds in the fridge that had already been soaked and dried, and a few dried figs left that were screaming, "eat me!" Okay, I lie, they weren't. But these things needed to be eaten, as well as the last little bit of vanilla almond mylk in my fridge. Soooo, I got creative :) The almonds alone are packed with calcium & magnesium (and a host of many other vitamins and minerals), and I added some sesame seeds for a bigger calcium punch. Topped with the almond mylk (and the other ingredients), this breakfast is a nutritional powerhouse that is not only delicious, but will keep you satiated for hours ;) Enjoy!

1/2 cup almonds
2-3 tbs sesame seeds
3 dried figs
1/4 cup steel cut oats (or soaked oat groats, to make it totally raw)
1/2 small banana, sliced
1 1/2 tsp cinammon
1/4 tsp sea salt

1) Toss all ingredients (except bananas) into food processor, and process until desired texture.
2) Empty muesli into bowl. Top with mylk and sliced bananas.
3) Smile. Eat :)
