Fresh Muesli with Apple and Almonds

Toasting the oats and almonds before soaking them gives this muesli a nuttier flavor. Be sure to buy old-fashioned oats, not quick-cooking -- the latter aren't as flavorful and chewy. Read more about healthy breakfast basics.

Fresh Muesli with Apple and Almonds

Source: Body+Soul, May 2008

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned roasted oats
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat (1 percent) Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup low-fat (1 percent) milk
  • 1/2 diced apple
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons honey

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place oats and almonds on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until almonds are golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes; let cool to room temperature. In a small bowl, stir together 3/4 cup of toasted oat mixture, yogurt, and milk. Cover and refrigerate until oats are soft, 1 hour or up to overnight.

  2. Spoon muesli into two bowls. Top with apple and remaining toasted oat mixture; drizzle with honey.

    Didn't see *all* the comments before. There is slight variation but all the answers for how to interpret "U" cup are very interesting.

    "U" is either a typo or a computer glitch. Since the recipe is supposed to serve 2 and the toasted oat mixture totals 1 C, I'm guessing that you're supposed to mix 1/2 - 3/4 C of the toasted oat mixture with the yogurt and then sprinkle the remaining amount (1/2 to 1/4 C) over the top. When you select the proportion you wish to use, you just need to decide it you want it to be more crunchy or more chewy.

    I do not understand this section of the Directions..."stir together U cup of toasted oat mixture"... What is the "U" supposed to mean?

    According to the USDA website, a "U" unit of measure for this recipe would be about a 1/2 cup per person. This would be a generous portion of muesli. I use a 1/3 cup portion. I also add a banana. Fresh berries in the summer make a delightful change.

    I also do not know what "U" means in the directions of this recipe. I googled as you said and no luck. Just tell us what it means. Thank you!

    Well, it won't let me input the whole link. It's cutting it off. Do a search on google. Key world "U" and "includes these words "Recipe, measure".

    It cut off the rest of my comment and link. http://books.google.com/books?id=5mC7E23HuPwC

    From what I can gather on a Google Search, it's a new Culinary Calculation for Units of Measure. http://books.google.com/books?id=5mC7E23HuPwC

    I noticed that someone asked about U cup back in September and no one replied. I too would like to know what the U stands for. I have notice this U in several recipes lately. Thanks.

    What is "U cup of toasted oat mixture.." I thought maybe it was the whole cup but than saw "Top with apple and remaining toasted oat mixture..." Thanks

    Great recipe - it's even better with some cinnamon mixed in, which is also helpful for cholesterol. Thanks!
