Shelf Stable Muesli Recipe

Muesli in Mylar bag

In a world filled with uncertainties, preparedness for emergencies is becoming increasingly important. One key aspect of preparedness is maintaining a well-stocked pantry, and among the crucial items to include, I believe shelf stable muesli should certainly be one of them.

I have designed this recipe, including a blend of rolled oats, dried fruits, nuts, and seeds, offering a wide range of essential nutrients. From fiber to protein, vitamins, and minerals, it can help maintain your overall health when other food sources may be scarce. This nutrient diversity is a crucial aspect of long-term survival. Its adaptability makes it suitable for various meals and snacks, and in a crisis, having a convenient and easy-to-prepare food source can be a game-changer.

So let's get to the mix:

- 6 cups of oats

- 250g of nuts (I used 100g of macadamia and 150g of cashews), which must be roasted for a longer shelf life.

- 1 cup Dried apples

- 1/2 cup Chia seeds

- 1/2 cup Dried coconut flakes (lightly toasted)

- 1/2 cup Crushed flax seeds

- 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon (optional)

- 2 Pieces of dried orange peel

All you have to do is mix all of the ingredients together and Mylar bag it with an oxygen absorber. This recipe was designed specifically for long-term storage in Mylar bags with oxygen absorbers. I can't stress enough that you should not put any moist fruit like raisins or apricots in the muesli if you intend to use an oxygen absorber. These fruits have moisture inside and are not safe to be stored in an oxygen-free environment. If you choose to use those fruits, store your mixture in an airtight container only.

Nutritional value of a 1-cup serving:

- 400 calories

- 60g carbs

- 12g protein

- 12g fiber

- 10g sugar

- 10g fats

The above mixture also offers an array of vitamins and minerals, including B9, Vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, selenium, and iron. On top of that, we are getting some antioxidants from our dried apples. As you can see, this mixture is a great addition to your shelf-stable pantry, so get mixing!
