Pomegranate Muesli

I am all about the muesli lately. It all happened when I discovered that pomegranate seeds make the best friggin’ muesli ever. Why?! Because they can make the bulk of your muesli instead of nuts and dried fruit, which are wonderful and nutrient-dense, but they’re also crazy filling and dried fruit is a ton of sugar. So using pomegranates? Brilliant.


Pomegranates are crunchy like a nut or seed, but sweet like dried fruit. They have the added bonus of being absolutely beautiful to look at.


Good grief. I just want a necklace made of pomegranate. I think I’d wear it every day.


Pomegranates just need to stop costing so much. And mangoes. And avocados. (Sigh.)

What foods do you LOVE that you wish were cheaper? I think if mangoes and pomegranates were cheaper, I would constantly have them in my kitchen!

Pomegranate Muesli

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Yield: serves 1

What you'll need:

How to make it:

  1. Combine oats with dried fruit and nuts in a cereal bowl.
  2. Add pomegranate seeds. I also added sliced banana.
  3. Eat with yogurt or milk of choice.

    I love to eat pomegranate seeds with oatmeal and greek yogurt (we call it Laban in Arabic). It’s funny, it’s pomegranate season here in the Middle East, and they are very cheap, 1/3 the price per kilo compared with apples (which don’t grow well here in Egypt). I love apples! I dish out the extra money to have both fruits in my house though šŸ™‚ Mangoes are also plentiful and cheap here in Egypt.

    Can I swap the pomegranate seeds and the greek yogurt for almond milk, blueberries and raspberries and a few nuts and get as much fiber and nutrition? Thanks. Diane

    Pomegranate fruit is eaten as a sweet or sour and sweet pomegranate is a fruit that has many health benefits. Pomegranate juice contains vitamin C and also contains minerals that are beneficial to the body in high doses.

    This may sound like a dumb question but do you buy pomegranate seeds on their own or take them out of an actual pomegranate?
