Fulfilling Raw Gluten-Free Sweet Grain Muesli, ready to eat

~ raw, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free ~

I am taking breakfast back to the basics. This muesli is a delicious blend of whole rolled oats, buckwheat, dried fruit, and seeds.  You can eat it cold with nut milk or raw yogurt, eat it warmed like oatmeal, or soak it overnight to unleash even more of the flavors.

You can also dress it up by adding fresh berries, diced fruit, or a dollop of nut or seed butter.  My favorite way is soaked overnight with almond milk, along with some freshly sliced bananas.

I choose to use yacon syrup as my sweetener in the muesli.  If you are not familiar with it, I hope that you will consider trying this delicious flavor enhancer.  It is a little on the spendy side, but I believe it is well worth it.  Yacon syrup is also known as yacon root extract, which is a sweetening agent extracted from the roots of the yacon plant.

If you are looking for a molasses replacement, this is a good substitute. It is close to the same viscosity and pretty darn close flavor-wise.   It contains half of the calories of sugar, promotes healthy bacteria in the digestive system, is loaded with minerals including potassium, and is low glycemic so that it won’t spike your blood sugar.

A win for the tummy!

Yacon Syrup is high in prebiotics, such as inulin and fructooligosaccharides (FOS). The concentration of FOS, which are sugars found naturally in many plants, is particularly high in this sweetener. FOS resist breakdown by enzymes in the human digestive system and reach the colon without being digested. Therefore it is very low in calories (about 20 calories per tablespoon). FOS also acts as a soluble fiber, which increases stool bulk to help prevent and control constipation.

Well, my friend, it is time to dirty up some dishes. If I were there with you, I would help wash them, but since I can’t… do know that I am with you in spirit. :) Please keep me posted below in the comment section if you give this recipe a try.

A yummy spoonful of Raw, Gluten-Free Sweet Grain MuesliIngredients:

Yields roughly 4 1/4  cups dried

Dry Ingredients:

Wet Ingredients:


  1. After soaking the oats, drain and rinse under cold water for 2 minutes.
    • Use your fingers to agitate the oats under the water.
    • Hand squeeze the excess water from them and place it in a large bowl.
  2. Drain and rinse the pumpkin seeds, adding them to the bowl with the oats.
  3. Add buckwheat, hemp seeds, raisins, coconut, and chia seeds.
    • If you don’t want to sprout the buckwheat fully, soak for 30 minutes. Drain and rinse for two minutes under cold water.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together the wet ingredients.  Pour over the oat mixture and mix until everything is evenly coated.
  5. Spread the mixture onto the non-stick teflex sheets that come with your dehydrator.
  6. Dehydrate at 145 degrees (F) for 1 hour, then reduce to 115 degrees (F) and dehydrate for 10 hours or until it reaches the desired dryness.
    • Dry time will always vary depending on the climate, humidity, and how thick or thin you spread the granola batter.
  7. Once cooled, place the dried batter in the food processor and pulse it just enough times to break it down to a small-medium crumble.
  8. Store in an airtight container on the counter for 1-2 weeks, in the fridge for 2-3 weeks, and even longer in the freezer.
  9. Serve with milk, yogurt, or juice.  You can eat it right away or do like the and let it soak in either of these, overnight.  Come morning; you have a beautiful porridge-like texture with a slight crunch.  Hands down, these are my favorite way to enjoy it!

    My glucose is high, I’m label as prediabetic. Stevie has an after taste. Do have deserts for me? I take blood pressure, iron, cholesterol pills. So I’m limited in the ingredients I can use. Thanks in advance.

      Hello Dee… I have so many deserts on my site. I think that it would be best to find some that interest you and then we can work on lowering the sugars… I will do my best to help you. Regarding stevia, have you tried NuNurals, liquid stevia (alcohol-free)? It’s the only one that I really enjoy. Just a thought.

      Merry Christmas and many blessings, amie sue
