Brilliant B12 Breakfasts, Edition: Muesli

B12 is a key vitamin that can be found in many fortified foods, such as plant milk, cereals and nutritional yeast. In fact, one portion (240ml) of soy milk alone can provide up to 86% of the recommended daily vitamin B12 intake.

Around 35% of meat eaters are deficient in B12

Livestock feed is often supplemented with B12  

Breakfast is a brilliant time to get your B12. Here is a delicious recipe for homemade muesli. Don't worry, you can still get your B12 fix with store bought muesli, or even other cereals fortified in B12.

Homemade Muesli 



  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan)
  • If you prefer a raw muesli, mix the grain flakes, oats, and bran, if using, in a large bowl. If you prefer a toasted muesli, mix the grain flakes, oats, and bran, if using, on a rimmed baking sheet and spread the grains so everything is 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep.
  • Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the grains look lightly toasted. Transfer the toasted flakes to a plate or another baking sheet and let cool to room temperature. Pop the flakes into a large bowl.
  • Stir in the seeds, dried fruits and nuts. Place the muesli into an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

 Serving Suggestion 

  • Fortified dairy-free milk
